In 1986, the Thanksgiving Food Drive started as a small community service project when the Association decided to collect food and distribute it to needy families through local agencies.
The first year, 78 boxes of food were distributed. The Thanksgiving Food Drive has grown considerably, distributing 804 turkeys and gift cards in 2016. Over the past 30years, the Thanksgiving Food Drive has distributed 12,757 meals in the greater Harrisburg area.
Each year, the generosity of our REALTOR® and affiliate members who support the Food Drive makes it the huge success it is.
Contributions to the Thanksgiving Food Drive may be made with credit cards by going to the Members Only section of the website.
