President Young surprised radio host John DeBella and his crew with an added $1,500 donation to the cause.
For the second year in a row, we sponsored 102.9 WMGK's Turkey Drop in 2015. The FM classic rock radio station partners with City Team Philadelphia to collect more than 10,500 turkeys to feed less fortunate families in Philadelphia before Thanksgiving. On November 24, Wendell Young presented WMGK with 360 kosher turkeys processed and packaged by Local 1776 Empire Kosher Poultry members -- that's more than 7,000 pounds of turkey! Wendell surprised the station by adding $1,500 to our Local's donation for a total of $4,000! Special thanks to Empire Kosher for their extremely generous donation to the cause!
