Turkey Drive Donation

What a wonderful time of year to share our abundance with others!  Each year at Thanksgiving, the Shipley community generously provides Thanksgiving meals to families throughout the Philadelphia area. This year, our goal is to distribute 325 Thanksgiving baskets. Each basket includes a delicious turkey, fresh vegetables, stuffing, cranberry sauce and additional items to assist these families beyond Thanksgiving Day.  
The organizations we support are:  The Breathing Room, Mercy Neighborhood Ministries (Germantown & Tioga), HopePHL (formerly People’s Emergency Center), Fanny Jackson Coppin (formerly The Andrew Jackson School), Overbrook Educational Center, and Ardmore Food Pantry.  

We hope you will join us in this act of generosity! Donations of $50 buy a turkey for a family and donations of $100 provide an entire meal to a family. Any level of support is greatly appreciated!!
