There are thousands of families in the PHILLY area that need the help provided by GREATER MEDIA's Classic Rock WMGK/PHILADELPHIA's Annual JOHN DEBELLA Turkey Drop more than ever this year. WMGK's partner in the Turkey Drop, CITY TEAM PHILADELPHIA, has seen a record number of sign-ups for holiday meal assistance this year. Once again, lines stretched from inside CITY TEAM PHILADELPHIA’s CHESTER headquarters, around the block and over the 7th Street bridge. A large percentage of families seeking CITY TEAM’s assistance are seeking assistance for the first time.
On TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24th from 6-9a, DEBELLA will broadcast live and accept monetary and turkey donations during this year's Turkey Drop at Love Park (16th & JFK). The JOHN DEBELLA Turkey Drop is the largest, one day food gathering event in PHILADELPHIA. Last year's event raised over 9,000 turkeys. The Turkey Drop benefits CITY TEAM PHILADELPHIA, an organization that provides food and services to less fortunate individuals, families, shelters and food groups in THE TRI-STATE.
