We delivered 513 dinners for the 2017 Thanksgiving Mobile Turkey Unit thanks to our more than 200 stellar volunteers and community support.

The Mobile Turkey Unit of Whidbey Island 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 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:
