Many Widowed Friends members have volunteered their time at Food For Life, sorting food for distribution to hungry families across Halton.

Another initiative that Food For Life sponsors annually is a Christmas Turkey Drive. The purpose of the drive is to collect as many turkeys as possible so everyone in our community can share a happy Christmas feast.

Last year, 1500 turkeys were donated to Food For Life; their goal this year is 2000 turkey donations! They are hoping to recruit 200 volunteers, 6 at each store, to approach shoppers and request a turkey donation. Food For Life will support volunteers with kits of info and a script that outlines what to say to shoppers when asking for turkey contributions.

How can you help?

Join the Widowed Friends Turkey Team! We will be located at one or two of the Fortino’s stores listed below on Saturday December 9th to encourage shoppers to donate turkeys to help hungry families this Christmas.  This is a fun volunteering event, so join the crowd and help make Christmas a little happier for everyone.

Please sign up on meet up asap so we can let Food For Life know how many volunteers they can count on for December 9th.  A big team may be able to collect a lot of turkeys so we really need your help to ensure our community all shares in a happy Christmas season.
