The Black Neighborhood (TBN) is partnering with the Richmond Police Activities League (RPAL), Prospect Sierra and Lacy’s Community Resources Foundation for its “6th Annual TBN Turkey Drive.” The annual event will waddle into RPAL Sun., Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to disperse free Thanksgiving turkeys and fixings to families in need.
Families wanting to sign up to receive a free turkey can click here. One turkey per family will be given out and organizers ask people to wear a mask and remain in their car when picking it up at their designated time.
Those wishing to offer a financial donation to support the charitable effort can send it via Cash App to $TheBlackNeighborhood or click here. Another way to assist organizers is by helping with some of the food items still needed: cans of chicken broth; cans of cranberry sauce; and boxes of mac n’ cheese. Produce such as potatoes, yams and onions are also needed, per Brandon Evans of RPAL. To schedule a drop-off or pick-up, text 510-214-2483.
RPAL, where the Turkey Drive is happening, is located at 2200 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond. For more info about the Turkey Drive or TBN, click here.
The Black Neighborhood aims to provide Black men, women and children with the knowledge, resources and tools to become productive, stable and self-sufficient members of the community, per its website.
