Simply To Feed People In Need

Dear friend, now more than ever, the demand to feed those in need is so overwhelming. The Covid-19 pandemic has sadly changed our world and a large number of families are lining up daily at soup kitchens and food banks around the country just to get a meal. However, because of this pandemic being extremely contagious, our ninth annual SF Turkey Drive will differ from past years' events. While our mission to help St Antony feed the hungry by involving individual donors from our neighborhoods must continue, we decided this year to only collect funds. We will certainly miss the excitement of our turkey drop-off site where we collected 740 turkeys last year, but it is best not to get anyone sick. We hope we can count on your continued support. 

As a reminder, we do this project  Simply To Feed People In Need.  Your donations from anywhere around the world can be made:

  • BY MAIL: donations by check payable to St Anthony need to be sent to 

                    SF Turkey Drive,  c/o St Emydius Church,  286 Ashton Avenue,  San Francisco, CA 94112

  • ONLINE: for donations by credit card, click here for details
  • DROP OFF Location: not available in 2020

  The collaboration between   St. Anthony's and SF Turkey Drive at St. Emydius plays a very large role in our ability to meet the demand by donating more than 500 Turkeys and other much needed food each year.

 As a member of this neighborhood, I support and have assisted the SF Turkey Drive in its efforts to feed those in need.
Hunger is a real issue in our city and our neighborhood. I hope everyone can assist Mr. Smit to reach those in need.

      The SFTurkey Drive at     St. Emydius Church has been conducted under the leadership of Mr. Pierre Smit, for several years. This has and will be our way of helping to feed those less fortunate. I personally have been a supporter of St. Anthony's for several years as this organization has helped so many individuals and families.
