14th Annual John DeBella Turkey Drop!

Standing outside on that very cold November 24th morning has paid off big time. The WMGK listeners came through again for this year’s 14th Annual John DeBella Turkey Drop.

Thanks to the generous outpouring of the listeners and our many sponsors, we were able to collect over 9,400 turkeys! Aside the birds, there was also a great deal of cash collected to buy turkeys. That means that not only on Thanksgiving, but for the upcoming holidays City Team will be able to feed many needy families right here in the Delaware Valley.

John DeBella was stationed in Love Park where he broadcasted his morning show. He was joined by his crew of Jen, Rob, and Dave. The rest of WMGK air staff were collecting turkeys at various other locations.

I was located at the Giant store in St. David’s. Before the sun even came up a guy in a truck came up and handed me an envelope. Before I could even open it he was gone into the darkness. It was only then I saw that he gave me $300 in cash. I wish I had time to get his name, but maybe that’s the way he wanted it.

Below you can see pictures of some of the many who came out to donate $3,345. It was a real pleasure meeting all of you, but I’d like to single out Ellen Evans and Pennsylvania Trust who were particularly generous with their donations.

Thanks so much to all of you!
