Turkey Drive

The Turkey Drive’s Purpose

The turkey drive is very important in our Eldorado community. For years, we have worked hard to make a difference, and we want to do the same this year by bringing food to people in need. Can you imagine not having any food for Thanksgiving? It would be hard right? We want to make others feel special by giving them a real Thanksgiving meal, and we hope that every person in the school can bring in at least one item of food. If you think about it that would be about 500 items of food! In addition if you bring in a turkey that would be awesome too. Please help, if you can, bring in food items for our Annual Turkey Drive!
