44th Annual Alumni Turkey Project

Give a Family A Reason to Celebrate

For over four decades, the Drexel community has provided holiday meals to those in need through the longest-standing alumni tradition at Drexel, the Annual Alumni Turkey Project.

The 44th Annual Alumni Turkey Project was held on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017 at the Drexel Armory. Thanks to the Drexel community's overwhelming generosity, 1,500 frozen turkeys and 40 bags of nonperishable food items were distributed to 42 community organizations and initiatives. A record-breaking $39,491 from 682 donors was raised in support of this year's Turkey Project. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Turkey Project and gave hundreds of families in need a reason to celebrate this holiday season!
