The "turkey basket" where donations are kept

You can donate a turkey by stopping by the Admissions Office and putting a check or cash in the turkey basket on the desk. Or, simply use your smartphone to scan one of the Turkey Drive posters around school to make a donation on line. It’s fast and easy! Once you’ve donated a turkey, please take a paper turkey from the envelope by Polly’s door, write your name or a prayer on it, and stick it on the wall near the door.
