The annual KDKA-TV Turkey Fund will take place between October 18 and November 21, with a goal of raising funds to provide holiday meals to neighbors in need in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The money raised goes to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and our network of partner food pantries as well as other food banks and pantries throughout the KDKA-TV viewing area.
The Food Bank estimates that one in seven families struggle to make ends meet when it comes to food each month, and one in five children goes hungry. Family budgets are often stretched even further around the holidays.
Over the past 36 years, this year is the 37th annual fund drive, the Turkey Fund has raised more than $15 million. In recent years, that effort has been supplemented through the support of PNC Bank, which is joining with KDKA again this year.
Viewers can bring their donations to any PNC Bank branch where PNC will match contributions of $50 or more up to $50,000. Viewers can also send a check to P.O. Box “Thanks” Pittsburgh 15230.
