This year WTXL will again partner with Second Harvest of the Big Bend. Over the last 2 years, you have helped to provide over 59,000 meals to people in the Big Bend. Together lets make 2016 a record year.
How You Can Help:
You can donate money or a frozen turkey TODAY at the WTXL Turkey Drive. We will be taking donations from 5am to 6:30pm in downtown Tallahassee at Ponce DeLeon Park. You won't even have to get out of the car! Don't worry if you can't make it in person. You will also be able to donate money online here. This year the goal is to raise $16,000.
Why You Should Help:
ALL money raised and turkey’s gathered go straight to Second Harvest of the Big Bend.
The latest statistics show that while food insecurity in Florida has declined statewide, it has actually risen in the Big Bend region. Currently, one in five individuals (20.8 percent), and one in four children (24.9 percent), face the challenge of not knowing whether they will have access to food from day to day.

For every dollar raised, Second Harvest can provide four meals to a hungry family
