Delivering free Thanksgiving meals to people on South Whidbey Island, plus Coupeville.
The goal of the Mobile Turkey Unit is to provide a free, home-delivered Thanksgiving meal for people on South Whidbey Island, plus Coupeville, who would otherwise not have one. This includes the elderly, shut-ins, low-income and unemployed people, plus employees working on Thanksgiving day. The event takes place at St. Hubert Roman Catholic Church in Langley.
The Mobile Turkey Unit of Whidbey Island is a nonprofit community service organized and provided by volunteers, which has taken place each Thanksgiving since 1999. It was founded by Tom Arhontas, who had a special place in his heart for people in need.
