Help us bring home the holidays to seniors in our community 

Turkeypalooza is the seasonal event of the Campus Kitchen at UGA and the Athens Community Council on Aging that provides holiday groceries and meals to older adult families and homebound individuals. This year, on our 10th Anniversary, members of our community across Athens will come together to donate time and cans to provide over 300 families with holiday meals and groceries.

We need your help to bring Thanksgiving to our older adults! Sign up your UGA student organization, UGA department, work group, or civic group to participate in this year's can drive.

Click the link below to register to participate. The information collected will be used to help us determine the specific item and goal for your organization. Registration closes October 11th at 5pm. 

*Please note that this year to make things a bit more exciting the Turkeypalooza Can Drive is a competition! The winner will get a fun prize to recognize them for all the hard work they put in.*
