Natick Amvets Post # 79 and Camp Arrowhead, American Veterans Recreation Association are once again sponsoring the annual “Turkey for Vets” program. Free turkeys and dressings will be provided to local area Veterans for the Thanksgiving holiday as a way to thank them for their service.
RSVP and pick-up details
To reserve a turkey or gift card, Veterans should contact John Clancy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-505-7494.
Veterans should respond before noon on Thursday, November 19, and indicate whether they want a frozen turkey and/or a $20 gift card to Roche Bros, Stop & Shop or Wegmans.
The “Turkeys for Vets” program is not based on economic need, so Veterans should not hesitate to respond to this offer.
Turkeys and/or gift cards will be available for pickup at the Natick Amvets Post #79, 79 Superior Drive on Sat., Nov. 21, 10am – 2pm.
Current Veteran members of Post # 79 may request that a gift card be mailed to them.
More on “Turkeys for Vets”
“Turkeys for Vets” has provided holiday meals for the past seven years to over 1,600 local Veterans and their families. This annual event was initially piloted as a good-faith gesture for our local Veterans. “Turkeys for Vets” now also serves as a mechanism to check in with Veterans and their families to determine if any other assistance may be required. This year the number of Veteran recipients is expected to increase due to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
