Latino Community Turkey Drive
About the Turkey Drive
In 1999, Frank Cordova went to pick up his wife from the school where she worked right before the Thanksgiving break. While picking her up, Frank met a little boy. Frank asked him if he was excited to eat some turkey during Thanksgiving. The boy told Frank that his family couldn’t afford a turkey. Frank was so moved, that he provided the turkey for that family in 1999. From there, Frank began the annual Latino Community Turkey Drive, seeking to provide low-income families with free turkeys over the Thanksgiving holiday.
This year, we are celebrating the 23rd year of providing turkeys to families in need. Once again, the Latino Community Turkey Drive will purchase and gather turkeys to distribute through selected Title I schools. With the community's help, we're up to the challenge.
