2021 Annual Turkey Drive

Dear Friends,

For many years, Temple Emanuel has generously supported the work of the Massachusetts Avenue Baptist Church’s Soup Kitchen through our annual Project Manna Concert and Thanksgiving Turkey Drive.

With Thanksgiving only weeks away, we are reaching out again for your support.

Our beloved member and past Brotherhood President, Danny Mandeau, spearheads the annual Turkey Drive and shares this message:

“When I reached out last year I stated, ‘This year is different. For one thing, we will be serving take out instead of hosting our traditional catered holiday meal.’ What is not different, however, is the ongoing need for a place such as Mass. Ave. In fact, the number of those in need is greater than ever. Homelessness and hunger are not going away anytime soon and have been made more acute due to Covid. The money raised by this annual campaign helps to defray the expenses that the soup kitchen incurs, especially the acquisition of turkeys which are distributed during this season. Pastor Brown does holy work and it is wonderful that we can do our part to support the church’s efforts all these years.”
