We are committed to transparency around our actions and programming. Feel free to contact us and ask questions around any of our programming or fin us online!
Donations we receive fill many needs, above all, they bring hope into the lives of families who are struggling daily, year-round. Your support also allows us to provide financial assistance in cases where families or individuals need emergency supplies such as oil for their furnace, help with a power bill, and prescription medication.
THE TURKEY CLUB, founded by Jack Cruickshank in 2004, is dedicated to helping the needy at Christmas.
