Vernon Rice Memorial Turkey Drive expands distribution

Now more than ever, your support is needed to feed families during the holiday season. New this year, the university's Vernon Rice Memorial Turkey Program will be expanded to provide hot holiday meals to families at two distribution sites, in East and West Baltimore.

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 distributed the food baskets to the families for Thanksgiving and will distribute them for the December holidays.

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 Community Engagement page of the Benefits & Worklife website.

Donations should be received by Friday, Dec. 10, for the December holidays.
