On November 26. 2019 all of us at WMGK got up very early for John DeBella’s annual turkey drop. John was at the Kimmel Center in center city, while the rest of us were station at 12 different Acme locations through the Delaware Valley. I was stationed at the Clifton Heights, PA store.
Our mission was the same as all the other years. Collect as many turkeys and/ or cash as we can from listeners while standing out in front of the store doing are best to stay warm. The listeners warmed us up by opening their hearts and pocketbooks.
Once again, this year the giving and generous spirit was out in full force. The final tally will not be known until the Monday after Thanksgiving because we are still encouraging people who couldn’t come up to donate online.
This is such an important cause. I have seen firsthand what City Team and their hundreds of volunteers do with the money and food that we donate. Thousands of people will have a much happier Thanksgiving and Christmas thanks to their efforts. The hope is that we will collect enough to cover both holidays.
Below are some of the generous listeners who came by to donate. We thank them and all who gave to make this event so successful.
