Turkey Club People photo 1Ruth was one of the first members of Turkey Club America. She had herself received food support from a local food bank after she lost her job and then became sick and was unable to support her family of 3 young children.

"I hated having to ask for help" Ruth told the Turkey Club News "but the people were so kind. They didn't make me feel like a second class citizen, they just helped me in my time of need. Now I am back on my feet I wanted to find a way that I could give back to others. I am working two jobs so I don't have the time to volunteer but Turkey Club America makes it so easy for me to give just a little each month to help those that are finding themselves just like I was."

Ruth started by giving just $10 a month to help those who are hungry but as she has gotten back on her feet she has increased that to a regular $15. "I know it is not a lot but it is all I can afford right now. I know the Turkey Club America appreciates every dollar that I give. I love getting the newsletter and reading about people that I am helping. It just makes me feel good inside."

Turkey Club People photo 2Peter and Helen and their 3 children are always busy. With Peter's job as a school teacher and Helen's part time work as a hairdresser they never seem to have time for anything but family and day to day chores.

"Turkey Club America is a way that we can all give something to help people in our own community" Said Peter "even the children give a regular amount from their allowances. Once in a while we get to go to the Hope Center and help a little, washing dishes and making up food bags and such but it is great to know that when we can't do that we can still help. It makes us all feel good about ourselves knowing that we are doing something every month to help people who can't help themselves."

mary s"I had never really thought about what it meant to be hungry until I met Rick. He was a veteran who had made some bad choices since coming back from Afghanistan and ended up on the street and relying on the rescue mission for his food. When I heard his story it brought tears to my eyes. I so wanted to help him but he was too proud to accept any gift from me. By giving each month to Turkey Club America I can help Rick and people like him and make sure that whatever else is wrong in their lives at least they get to eat. I don't have lots of money to spare, but I can easily give the cost of a meal every month to provide food for people like Rick." Mary S

david"I first heard about Turkey Club America when they came to do a presentation at my church. I couldn't believe that there were so many homeless and hungry people in my town.

I signed up straight away and have been contributing regularly ever since. I hardly notice the cost of one or two meals each month but it makes such a difference to those in need. I don't think I have ever gone to bed hungry in my life—not really hungry—so it really means something to me to be able to feed those who are less fortunate than I am." David R
