Thanksgiving Food Drive

In 1986, the Thanksgiving Food Drive started as a small community service project when the association decided to collect food and distribute it to needy families through local agencies.

The first year, 78 boxes of food were distributed. Over the past 35 years, the Thanksgiving Food Drive has distributed 17,822 meals in the greater Harrisburg area.

Last year was our 36th Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. We were able to feed 1,000 local families!

Each year, the generosity of our REALTOR® and Business Partner members who support the Food Drive makes it the huge success it is. We couldn’t do it without you, so thank you!
