Frozen Turkeys and the Fixings Make the Holidays Warm!

November 30, 2014

Imagine Thanksgiving Day without a hot meal, much less a delicious turkey dinner with stuffing, sweet potatoes, and, of course, pumpkin pie, and eating so much it’s hard to get up from the table.

For many Americans, they don’t have to imagine it – they live it. What most Americans take for granted – sitting around a large table with family and eating their fill – is an unaffordable luxury for the neediest in Appalachia.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Thanks to your support, Americans Helping Americans® is able to provide thousands of frozen turkeys to our partner organizations throughout Appalachia so that for those most in need in our nation Thanksgiving is not just another day – but a day we as a nation are all able to enjoy and give thanks for.
