Now more than ever your support is needed to feed families this holiday season

You are invited to donate $45 to provide a basket of a fresh turkey and vegetables from a local free-range farm for a family in need. St. Anthony of Padua Church will distribute the food baskets directly to families for Thanksgiving and the December holidays. New this year, the Vernon Rice Memorial Turkey Program will be expanded to provide hot meals to families at two distribution sites in East and West Baltimore.

To participate in this season's turkey program, Hopkins employees can use a credit or debit card by clicking the Donate button under the Vernon Rice Memorial Turkey Program tab on the Benefits & Worklife website.

Donations should be received by Monday, Nov. 22, for the Thanksgiving holiday and Friday, Dec. 11, for the December holidays. Learn more about Vernon Rice and Johns Hopkins' holiday program here.
