Annual CCW Holiday Turkey Drive


Thirty years ago Jim Brennan bought forty turkeys for hungry Chicago families at Thanksgiving.  Jim’s mission started a partnership that we’ve expanded and maintained. Many thousands of turkeys later, The Community Church of Wilmette is once again asking for your help in providing food and meals, including turkeys, for local families this holiday season.  The recipient agencies have come to rely on us to help them put meals on the table of many families who couldn’t otherwise do so.
