St. Vincent de Paul and Walmart Distributed 2,500 Turkeys to Families in Need

St. Vincent de Paul and Walmart Distributed 2,500 Turkeys to Families in Need

On Saturday, Nov. 18, 2,500 families received turkeys just in time for Thanksgiving, thanks to Walmart’s Extra Helping program.

The turkey distribution is the finale of Walmart’s month-long Extra Helping campaign to collect donations on behalf of St. Vincent de Paul’s food bank. In addition to collecting $12,500 in customer donations at the register for St. Vincent de Paul, Walmart matched every $10 donation with a donation of a turkey.  As a result, Walmart is donating 1,250 turkeys and St. Vincent de Paul is providing the additional 1,250 turkeys for the giveaway.

These turkeys will go a long way to help feed hungry families this Thanksgiving. Each family receiving a turkey on Nov. 18 was selected by St. Vincent de Paul’s food bank program.
