Attention all locals who want to donate something to the community this Thanksgiving season: November 20 marks the fifth annual Turkey & a $20 donation drive at One80 Place.
The event is a fun and interactive way for the downtown homeless shelter to raise funds and collect food that helps the facility feed guests and support critical guest services all year. Accepted donations: Monetary gifts, protein (ham, beef, pork), non-perishables, canned goods and personal items.
Donations will be collected for Turkey and a $20 Tuesday, November 20, 2018, from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at One80 Place, 35 Walnut Street, Charleston.
At the 2017 Turkey & a $20 drive, One80 Place collected 520 turkeys, which served about 4,100 meals over the course of the year. The event raised $40,000. The money raised goes toward providing supportive services for the guests of the shelter with the focus of getting individuals housed quickly. Support services include health care, legal services, case management, employment training and placement, housing services, and Veterans services.
