2020 Turkey Drive - Donations needed by November 16

November 9, 2020

Help the Yale Police Department feed people in need this holiday season during the 4th Annual Turkey Drive. Consider a cash donation to help them purchase Thanksgiving dinners for needy New Haven families.

Since 2016, the Yale Police Department’s Thanksgiving Turkey Drive has fed over 3,500 New Haven residents. Working with their partners including, the New Haven Aldermen/women, local schools, and other non-profit groups they pinpoint those in need. This includes the elderly, disabled, and many families.

Due to the COVID pandemic, they are unable to accept food donations and are seeking cash donations. YPD Officers will use 100% of the money donated to purchase turkeys and non-perishable foods to make up Thanksgiving dinners.

Cash donations, needed by Monday, November 16, can be mailed or dropped off at the Yale Police Department at 101 Ashmun Street, New Haven. The Turkey Drive takes places Friday, November 20 at 4:00 p.m. at Wexler Grant School in New Haven. Those in need will stop by to pick up pre-packaged turkey and trimmings.
