Natick Amvets Post # 79 and Camp Arrowhead , American Veterans Recreation Association are once again sponsoring our annual Turkey for Vets Program. Free Turkeys and Dressings will be provided to local area Veterans for the Thanksgiving holiday as a way to say THANK YOU for your service.

Veterans should respond before noontime (12:00) on Thursday, November 18, indicating whether they want a Frozen Turkey and/or a $20 gift card to Roche Bros, Stop & Shop or Wegmans.

Any Metro-West area Veteran that would like to receive a Turkey and a Gift Card must come to AMVETS Post #79 on Saturday, November 20 the day of the event.  Any current Veteran member of Post #79 may request that a gift card be mailed to them.

This offer is NOT based on economic needs, so Veterans should not hesitate to respond to this offer. Turkeys and/or gift cards will be available for pickup at the Natick Amvets Post #79, 79 Superior Drive, between 10AM and 2PM on Saturday November 20.

To reserve a turkey or gift card Veterans should contact  turkey4vets@gmail.com OR CALL 508-907-0159 with your name, military status, branch, and best way to contact you.  We will do our best to accomodate specific requests for gift cards based upon availability.

As the number of Veterans continues to increase so does the financial requirements to successfully run this annual event.  We are reaching out to our local Community Partners to support this event  and share in giving back to our local Veterans.

Over the last 8 years we provided holiday meals to over 1,800 local Veterans and their families. This annual event was initially piloted as a good faith gesture for our local Veterans.     


We discovered in recent years that this gesture is not only a way to say thank you to our Veterans, but serves also as a mechanism to check in with our Veterans and their families to determine if any other assistance may be required. This year we expect the number of Veteran recipients to increase due to the continued challenges presented by the prolongned COVID 19 pandemic.

This event is managed by volunteers and 100% of all donations will go to support Veterans.
