Annual Turkey Drive
A Student-Led Tradition


Initiated by the Class of 2019 as fifth grade students in 2011, Country Day’s Annual Turkey Drive has become a special annual school-wide community giving tradition.

Each year, Country Day collects turkeys for Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services to provide for local families in need. Parent and student volunteers collect fresh and frozen turkeys at morning drop off. 

In 2018, Country Day families donated a record-breaking 528 turkeys and $1,600 in cash donations. 

Thank you to the founding members of the Class of 2019 for their leadership in establishing the Turkey Drive!
