For the fourth consecutive year, ESU students in Greek organizations have adopted Project Turkey, a fundraising initiative to provide Thanksgiving turkeys for community members in need. The service initiative launched in 2015 raised $9,200 last year to provide Thanksgiving turkeys to families in need in Monroe County. Project Turkey also receives donations at the Salvation Army Harvest Fair, turkeys from Aramark and a dress-down day for East Stroudsburg School District providing a major donation. The ESU students were able to raise close to $2,000 in donations.
Since participating in last year’s successful fundraising campaign, sororities and fraternities once again selected Project Turkey as their philanthropic initiative. ESU students also helped give out turkeys to families on distribution day. Each year the Salvation Army secures a competitive price for turkeys, and has been able to fund Thanksgiving turkeys for more than 650 families to help them celebrate.
