Turkey Dinner Drive

PA Leadership Helps - 2015

Help Us Feed Pennsylvania Families!

Each year for the past several years, PA Leadership faculty and staff have come together to collect food around the Thanksgiving holiday for families in need. This year is no different, except that we are extending the invitation to our students and families to join in our food drive.

Who are the Recipients?

For the Turkey Dinner Drive East, we have partnered with the Westtown-East Goshen (WEGO) Police Department's Turkey Dinner Drive. PALCS has committed to provide 40 complete meals for their Drive. Families in the Chester County area, where PALCS' main office is located, are eligible to receive the meals. They receive a box the day before Thanksgiving filled with everything for the big meal - a meal they wouldn't have without the help of the Drive.


For the Turkey Dinner Drive West, we have partnered with The Springdale Food Bank, which is less than 10 minutes away from our Western Regional Office in Pittsburgh.
