St. Athanasius Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive Needs Our Support

November 18, 2020

ARLINGTON, MA – The community of Saint Athanasios the Great Greek Orthodox Church in Arlington is attempting to feed 425 families a full Thanksgiving meal. Parish Council Associate Treasurer Michael Terzakis shared the information via email, noting that “never before have we undertaken such an important task.”

He continued, “We are feeding families that are enlisted with The Home for Little Wanderers. These are not just families that are struggling financially, these are families that are dealing with major obstacles.”

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year the community is not accepting turkey donations, but would appreciate financial donations to help purchase the Thanksgiving meals for the families in need.

A donation of $25 provides an entire meal with all the trimmings for one family, while $50, $75, and $100 provide meals for additional families.

Those who would like to make a donation, can support this effort by visiting the church’s website: www.SaintAthanasius.org to make a donation online, or send a check payable to St. Athanasius Greek Orthodox Church to the community’s address St. Athanasius Greek Orthodox Church 4 Appleton Street, Arlington, MA 02476, with “turkey” in the memo field.
