Turkey Drive Collects School Record 188 Turkeys

The turkeys and money raised will be donated to No Hunger Holiday

Senior Maggie Barnett and junior Dylan Holschen bring in five frozen turkeys for the annual turkey drive. This year, the turkey drive was able to collect 188 turkeys.

As we start to approach Thanksgiving, we come to realize all the things we are thankful for. This November marks the Annual Turkey Drive at Liberty. This was an opportunity for us as a community to show our appreciation for the holiday and to give to others.

“Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what you can be thankful for in your life,” ASC sponsor Ms. McMillen said, who was the organizer of the turkey drive said.

Last year the turkey drive collected 167 turkeys and on Nov. 16 they topped that number as they received 188 turkeys from many generous students and staff. It’s the most the school has ever gathered since starting the annual turkey drive.

Through a hefty competition between departments, the practical arts/fine arts department raised the most money for the turkey drive. All together, the departments raised a total of $375.62 in donations which will go to the organization No Hunger Holiday

This drive partners with No Hunger Holiday, which allows for people to provide Thanksgiving meals for people and families in need of food. With the help and organization of Student Council and Assistant Student Council, Liberty was able to come together to donate.

“It is important for people to donate because we are helping families in need in our own community,” Ms. McMillen said. This is a great way to give back to the community, as 16,498 people in St. Charles County were relying on SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) in 2020, according to St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank.

The drive serves as a reminder that Thanksgiving is not just a holiday, it’s a season for thankfulness. “It’s about food, family, fun, giving, and being together,” Ms. Pizzo, who is a big supporter of the drive, said.
