2021 Thanksgiving Turkey Drive
Since the pandemic started, nonprofits, church groups, and community efforts have seen a significant rise in requests for food assistance. The Kendalwood Food Bank in Whitby had just 50 families they served regularly and now are tight pressed to support over 200.
This Thanksgiving, we partnered up with the Kendalwood Food Bank to deliver turkeys to families in need. This collaboration was made possible by Feed the Need in Durham which brought our attention to the food bank. 200 birds were purchased and handed out at the event.
“I wanted to ensure that everyone in the community has full table on Thanksgiving. I remember times growing up when our family wasn’t in a financial position to enjoy a thanksgiving dinner.” Said Kyle Mufti, Chairman of North American Concrete when asked why we had chosen to help. “Hard times come and go, but it’s the community that helps one another get through them. North American Concrete will continue to be a cornerstone in the community and we invite others to join us”.
For our next fundraiser, we would love to see more construction groups join us in giving back. Our collective efforts are truly making an impact in times where many could use a helping hand.
