Poverello "Turkey Hunt" Provides Turkeys for People with HIV

Abstract
Each year, the Poverello Center in Wilton Manors, Fla., organizes a “Turkey Hunt” fundraiser intended to provide Thanksgiving dinners to the families of HIV/AIDS patients. The center supports these same families throughout the year with the proceeds from sales through their thrift stores. According to Fundraising Director Jim O’Hay, the center assists between 2,000 and 3,000 families per month. A donation of $14.57 will fund a complete Thanksgiving dinner of a 10-lb. turkey with all of the trimmings and traditional side dishes for a family of four to six individuals. A donation of $29.14 will provide two dinners, and $43.71 will provide three dinners. Credit card donations can be made by visiting Poverello.org or by calling (954) 561-3663. Donations can also be made by a check payable to The Poverello Center Inc., which can be mailed or hand-delivered to the center’s thrift store at 2056 N. Dixie Highway, Wilton Manors, Fla., 33305.
