Turkeys for Vets

On Saturday November 20, 2021 from 10am -2pm, Natick AMVETS Post #79 and Camp Arrowhead, American Veterans Recreation Association will conduct our 8th Annual “Turkeys for Vets” event to simply say ‘THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE’ to the Veterans of the Greater Metro-West region. As the number of Veterans continues to increase so does the financial requirements to successfully run this annual event. We ask for your kind support to help us give back to our Veterans.

Over the last 8 years we provided holiday meals to over 1,600 local Veterans and their families. This annual event was initially piloted as a good faith gesture for our local Veterans. We discovered in recent years that this gesture is not only a way to say thank you to our Veterans, but serves also as a mechanism to check in with our Veterans and their families to determine if any other assistance may be required. During the pandemic, we saw a record number of Veterans with food insecurities reach out to us for help. As the pandemic continues to stretch on, we expect the number of Veteran recipients to increase due to the challenges presented by the COVID 19 pandemic and access to food and food services.

This event is managed by volunteers and 100% of all donations will directly support Veterans.
