More than 160 turkeys and full dinners for a family of six were donated by members of Epiphany of Our Lord Parish in Plymouth Meeting.
Area SuperFresh and Weis supermarkets stored the turkeys before the eighth grade students of Holy Rosary Regional Catholic School loaded trucks for delivery last week before the Thanksgiving holiday.
Over 100 turkeys and full dinners were delivered to Project HOME in Philadelphia, distributed the baskets to local residents, families of students at the Honickman Learning Center and to low-income families in North Philadelphia.
An additional 50-plus turkeys and dinners were delivered to the Missionaries of Charity in Norristown. Since 1984 the sisters have operated an emergency food service organization. In addition to food, household items and clothing are distributed to residents and are used to restock an emergency shelter for women and children.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
