Operation Turkey 2019
Everyone deserves a hot, nutritious holiday meal. However, the reality is that over hundrerds of thousands of people in Northwest Ohio do not have the resources to have a turkey on their tables. A donation to Operation Turkey will help to provide turkeys to hungry families. Last year, as a result of your amazingly generous donations, we were able to distribute 7,168 pounds of turkey to our member agencies.
With the impending winter season approaching, the approximate 250 member agencies that are part of the Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank’s network are preparing to meet the increasing needs of the hungry in our community. This can be an arduous task as every year the need for food assistance grows. There are thousands of children, families and senior citizens right here in our community, who will not have a holiday meal. With the joy of the holidays also comes the harshness of the winter months. Rising heating and transportation costs will affect us all this coming winter; however, it will be especially burdensome for the almost 2 million Ohioans who live below the poverty line.
The need is great. We want to make 2019 our most successful year to date for Operation Turkey. With your help we can do it! Please support Operation Turkey by making a donation. Your gift will spread the spirit of caring and giving to those who desperately need it in our community.
