With the holiday season fast approaching, Johns Hopkins is now soliciting contributions for its long-standing Vernon Rice Memorial Holiday Turkey Program.
Members of the university community are invited to donate $25 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 deliver the food baskets directly to families for Thanksgiving and the December holidays.
In order to purchase a Thanksgiving meal for a family, donations must be received by Friday, Nov. 9. To purchase a family meal for the December holidays, donations must be received by Friday, Dec. 7.
To participate, you may use your credit or debit card. Or, you may send a $25 check or money order, made payable to JHU Turkey Program, to JHU Turkey Program, Office of Work, Life and Engagement, 1101 E. 33rd St., Suite C100, Baltimore, MD 21218.
