Turkeypalooza 2020!

Turkeypalooza 2020!

TurkeyPalooza is an annual event that partners ACCA and the Office of Service Learning Campus Kitchen at UGA to provide a full thanksgiving meal to food insecure older adults.

Thanks to your generous donations, we raised $22,823, exceeding our goal of $14,500, to provide over 1,350 Thanksgiving meals to older adults in our community.

With your help we can not only ensure that our community seniors are able to safely gather around the table for a day of thanks, but also fund senior hunger initiatives for the entire year! Woo-hoo! We are so incredibly thankful for your support in helping others age well!

A special shout out to those who helped make Turkeypalooza happen! From donating turkeys and canned goods to volunteering their time, we could not have done it without your help!

Thank you, Campus Kitchen at UGA, Jennings Mill Country Club, Creature Comforts, Hughes Subaru, Epting EventsUGA Office of Service Learning, Melinda and Ken from White Tiger, Wal-Mart at Epps Bridge, Bell’s, Trader Joe’s and, of course, those who donated and our fabulous volunteers who helped pack bags, deliver turkeys and load cars!
