Please help us to give to Philadelphia families during our annual Thanksgiving food drive. There are three ways to get involved; you may register for more than one:

  • Donate money - Nov. 1 – Nov. 11
  • Shop for food - Nov. 12 - Nov. 18
  • Assemble baskets - Nov. 19 (Penn Valley, Penn.)

For the third consecutive year, Duke Philadelphia is partnering with Children's Crisis Treatment Center (CCTC) and donating Thanksgiving food baskets that CCTC will distribute to Philadelphia families in need. CCTC, a non-profit that has serviced Philadelphia children and their families for over 40 years, provides comprehensive mental and behavioral health services to families in our area. With your help, last year Duke Philadelphia was able to donate baskets to 25 CCTC families (five more than the year before). Your monetary donations are critical to the success of this event and together we hope to serve an even greater number of families this holiday season!
