DOVER, DE (November 18, 2014) – Dover Federal Credit Union is proud to announce its participation in the annual Turkey Round Up, a program that helps the Food Bank of Delaware collect and distribute turkeys and non-perishable food to families in need during the holiday season.

In appreciation of their dedicated service throughout the past year, Dover Federal recently awarded each of its employees a $20 turkey gift voucher. Employees were given the option to donate their vouchers to the Turkey Round Up program so that turkeys could be purchased for hungry Delawareans. As well, Dover Federal collected non-perishable items and monetary donations at all of their branch locations. The combined efforts of employees and Dover Federal members raised $1,585.83 and 6 large bins filled with food for the holidays. The Turkey Round Up is a program put on by Clear Channel and their stations 94.7 WDSD and Mix 92.9, we were glad to join them for this great cause.
