For 34 years Nor Enterprises and Our Youth Inc. has provided food to thousands of seniors and families in our community who might otherwise have gone hungry on Thanksgiving Day. In the past 10 years alone we have fed in excess of 75,000 people.

Nor Enterprises Annual Turkey Give Away is once again going "state wide" to provide turkeys to families from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware in Seaford, Milford, Georgetown, Dover, Smyrna, Greater Newark and to 13 City of Wilmington Senior Assisted Buildings. Last year we gave away 3000 turkeys and fed over 30,000 people but that only scratched the surface of those who are hungry in our state and feeling the pain of poverty and misfortune. Without caring people like you it is not possible for this annual tradition to continue.
Here are several ways you can help.

1. Send a check to: Our Youth Inc. 1213 B Street, Wilmington, DE 19801

2.  Deliver your turkeys to Nor Enterprises on Monday, November 21st by sPM or any one of the designated Boys & Girls Clubs the day of the event.

3. Or by Pressing the Donate Button

Turkey Give Away
