Help, we need more turkeys!

Let's go from this...               to this...
Help us go from this... to this...
 

The River Fund started on Thanksgiving
22 years ago...

 

...and every year since then, the number of people who depend on us to cushion the blow of crushing poverty expands by about 20% at this time. This year, however, that growth has been much greater, becasue on November 1, every family on Food Stamps had their benefits cut—thanks to budget-balancing in Washington, D.C. Now, even those who used to be able to afford a turkey in November won't have one.

The River Fund needs your help to put turkeys on more tables this Thanksgiving: Please help us show the children of needy families that they too can enjoy the most quintessential of American holidays like everyone else—and return to school without having to admit to their peers that "Thanksgiving" means nothing without the meal.

Help us buy the turkeys we need!

Through our special wholesale partnerships, we can purchase and deliver turkeys to the families we serve at the price of $15 each. Please help us get as many as possible and make a difference in this very special way at this very special time of the year. Thank you.

Serving 22 years as a poverty amelioration organization whose client-base comprises 40% children, The River Fund has been fighting the growth of food-insufficiency in New York—where poverty and its effects, including hunger and homelessness, have hit levels that rival those recorded here during the Great Depression. Our Mission, “to feed and empower those we serve to move beyond the lines of poverty,” makes us the life-line for 160,000 people now facing the Hunger Cliff.
