PASSING THE BATON

WDEL: After 40 years leading Thanksgiving giveaway, Stormin’ Norman Oliver passes the turkey torch to Ivan Thomas.

Up to 100,000 people – many of them senior citizens and families in need – have been fed a Thanksgiving dinner over four decades of the Stormin’ Norman Oliver Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway.

Tuesday’s visit to about a dozen senior high-rises was the last one led by the former City Council member, who recently announced that the 40th giveaway would be the last one he would lead. Elected officials turned out to present tributes, resolutions and proclamations for Oliver at Herlihy Apartments, as residents signed up for their turkeys.

STATE WIDE RESOURCE GUIDE

New to the Turkey Drive! With so many people in need, we wanted to take our giving to the next level and provide access to information, resources and programs for the seniors and families who receive turkeys this year.  Our goal is to ensure families’ and seniors’ needs are met outside of just Thanksgiving.

 

Please become a sponsor and help us get the Resource Guide out with the turkey donations.
