Turkey Drive!

This Thanksgiving, the DLS LAX team will once again support the hungry and needy in our community by helping St. Vincent de Paul provide 150 Turkeys for their Thanksgiving food basket distribution. We look to all players for participation; Freshman/Sophomore, JV, and Varsity. Please support this Thanksgiving Food Distribution with your donations and volunteer support on Saturday, November 17, 8:30 am – 10:30 am.


Our goal is to raise at least $2,500 to cover the cost of the turkeys.


To participate:


1)     Make a donation by 11-10-18. The average price of each turkey is $14-16, so a suggested contribution covering the cost of 1-2 turkeys is appreciated by each player/family. Please make donations by 11-10-18. It is preferred that donations be made on-line as it is the easiest way for St. Vincent De Paul to process them!

a.     Online donations at www.svdp-cc.org, go to “Donate” button, and you will go to a pull-down menu to select the “campaign”: De La Salle Turkey Distribution. You will immediately receive your tax-deductible donation via email.

b.     Check donations made out to “St. Vincent de Paul of Contra Costa County”, note “DLS Lacrosse Thanksgiving Turkey Drive” in check memo area. You (your son) can drop checks with Sherry Bedford at the front desk at school.


2)     Volunteer on Saturday, November 17 8:30-10:30. We ask that all boys (Frosh/JV/Varsity) come and help distribute turkeys and food to families at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 860 Oak Grove Blvd, Concord, CA.


3)     Solicit donations from friends and neighbors. Your son can ask for additional donations using the attached template.


If you have a company that “matches” your donation, St. Vincent de Paul’s tax-exempt 501-c-3 is: 94-1448577.


Thank you so much for your generosity from the low-income neighbors you are helping in Concord and from St. Vincent de Paul!
