Christmas Turkey Drive
Students of Immaculata Regional High School are kicking the holiday season into high gear this year through their support of the Central Okanagan Community Food Bank, by accepting the public’s turkey and monetary donations. Note that all monetary donations will go directly towards the purchase of additional turkeys.
With a goal of collecting at least 150 turkeys to supplement the estimated 2000 needed to fill Christmas Food Hampers, the Immaculata Christmas Turkey Drive will take place on Monday, November 25th, and will help to feed those most in need this holiday season.
“One of the primary goals of Immaculata Regional High School is to foster social awareness and a commitment to community service in our students. We are proud to support the Central Okanagan Food Bank during the lead up to the Christmas season and to help local families who are in need,” says Rob Plaxton, Principal of Immaculata Regional High School.
"The kindhearted support shown to our clients by Immaculata Regional High School by way of a Turkey Drive is amazing," says Communications Officer for the Central Okanagan Food Bank, Tamie Williams. "We are incredibly grateful to everyone who is organizing the event, and to all who will donate. This important event will help those who need it most, and we hope the community rallies to make it a wonderful success."
As an added incentive to donate turkeys, the Central Okanagan Food Bank has five (5) sets of four (4) tickets to the Rocky Mountain Christmas show to give away via a draw. One ballot will be given for each frozen turkey or donation of $20.
Immaculata students will be accepting donations on the morning of Monday, November 25th from 7:30am to 10:00am at Immaculata Regional High School at 1493 KLO Road.
Donations of turkeys are asked to be frozen if possible.
