We delivered more than 330 dinners last Thanksgiving thanks to our stellar volunteers and community support.
The Mobile Turkey Unit is a community service organized and provided by volunteers, which has taken place each Thanksgiving since 1999. It was founded by Tom Arhontas, who had a special place in his heart for people in need.
The goal of the Mobile Turkey Unit is to provide a free, home-delivered Thanksgiving meal for people who would otherwise not have one. This includes the elderly, shut-ins, low-income and unemployed people, plus employees working on Thanksgiving day on South and Central Whidbey.
This website contains information about how to request a meal, how to volunteer, and how to donate to the Mobile Turkey Unit. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving!
This year’s Mobile Turkey Unit has a new home and will take place at St. Hubert Catholic Church in Langley. Please visit our How To Order meal page to receive a delicious Thanksgiving dinner delivered to your home or workplace; to our How To Volunteer page if you’d like to help; and our Donation page to help support this effort. And please check out our Thanks For The Support page to see the organizations who make this possible.
