2020 Turkey Giveaway Event

The Turkey Giveaway for 2020 almost did not happen due to Covid-19. However, NENA, our donors and devoted volunteers made the event a successful one. All of the turkey, yam, stuffing and bread were purchased by NENA at local supermarkets with donations received from our generous donors.  We were able to provide approximately 220 needy families with a turkey, stuffing, yams, bread and more.

The event occurred on November 21, 2020. Thanks to our valuable donors listed below:
L9W Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development;  Don A Rouzan & Associates, LLC, Universal Printing, LLC, Willie & Deloris Calhoun, Alfred & Bette Perez, Jaward Shakir, Bayou Title, Alpha Insurance Agency. A special thanks to New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS (NOMAR) for their Big Chief donation of $2,500.

Also, a special thank you to Council woman Cindi Nguyen for supporting the event along with dozens of amazing volunteers that made this event such a success.at
