Turkey Project 19

46th Annual Alumni Turkey Project

It’s a beloved holiday tradition to share a delicious meal with family and friends. However, every year thousands of Philadelphians are left with an empty table.

The 46th Alumni Turkey Project brings together alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends to provide holiday meals — turkey with many of the trimmings — for families. How can you get involved with Drexel’s longest-standing community tradition?

Volunteer with members of the Dragon community on December 12 and help distribute 2,000 holiday meals directly to our community partners. Family and friends are encouraged to participate! Volunteer opportunities include stuffing bags of food in preparation for the big event or participating in distribution day on December 12.

I want to volunteer

Make a gift to provide holiday meals for families who couldn’t otherwise afford it. $25 provides one family with a meal. Together, we can distribute 2,000 meals on December 12 and help Philadelphia families create and continue their own traditions.

I want to support the Alumni Turkey Project

Spread the word on social media using #DrexelTurkeyProject and help us unite the Dragon community in support of this time-honored Drexel Alumni tradition.

What is the Alumni Turkey Project?:
