It’s the 17th Annual CBC Turkey Drive and we need your help!
CBC Edmonton’s biggest fundraiser to support Edmonton’s Foodbank runs from Thursday, December 13 to Thursday, December 20 and our goal is $230,000 (or about 9200 turkeys valued at $25 each).
Each day of the Turkey Drive, with our partner Lilydale, we will collect monetary donations and frozen turkeys for Edmonton’s Foodbank.
Plus if you are coming down to donate, don’t forget to join us each weekday from 11:45-1 p.m. for our free weekday lunch-hour entertainment on the CBC Centre Stage. See the calendar below for details.
