We delivered 550 dinners to local families in need this year thanks to our nearly 200 volunteers and community support.
(Photos and video from this year’s Mobile Turkey Unit coming soon.)
The Mobile Turkey Unit of Whidbey Island is a nonprofit 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 on Whidbey Island who would otherwise not have one. This includes the elderly, shut-ins, low-income and unemployed people, plus employees working on Thanksgiving day. The event is hosted by St. Hubert Roman Catholic Church in Langley.
Here is a video of this year’s event:
And here’s one from 2016. And one from 2015.
