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, 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.
