The 2023 Coats and Cans for Kids Turkey Giveaway will be held on Friday, November 10th at our Akron location, 3412 W. Market St., Fairlawn, OH 44333. This event will start at 11:00 a.m. and run until all turkeys have been handed out.
You can drive up to our Akron office on November 10th and donate a used coat or any non-perishable food item. In exchange, you’ll receive a free turkey just in time for Thanksgiving! We ask that you place your donation in your trunk and we’ll swap it for a turkey. Can donations support the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank and coat donations benefit Volunteers of America.
Generally, yes. The turkeys are given on a first come, first serve basis, so the line can sometimes get long.
No. Due to the safety our workers who will be setting up and the nearby businesses, our parking lots will be closed until the event begins at 11:00 a.m.
