Thanksgiving Day is in 9 months, 4 days, 6 hours, 46 minutes, 22 seconds


In 2017, Operation Turkey hand delivered more than 50,000 meals to the homeless and less fortunate in 13 official cities and 6 states. This year our goal is 75,000 meals with even more locations.

Our volunteers work throughout the year to ensure everything is in place to prepare, package, and deliver warm meals, care packages, and clothing donations to those in need from 8am – 12pm Thanksgiving Day.

Here are some tips for Thanksgiving Day:

  • Please plan to show up at 8:00 am wearing comfortable clothing and closed-toed shoes for walking safety.
  • You are always able to select what you would like to do. Cooking, cleaning, delivering, packaging or plating; there is always a job to be done. Any time and help you can offer Operation Turkey is greatly appreciated.
  • Kids are welcome and encouraged to come out with parents or guardians. We also have special programs that enlist the help of the younger members of your family. They will get to share the great Operation Turkey experience with you, and it will help open their young eyes to the importance of giving back to their communities.
