Gobbler Gathering

For over 90 years, ERM has hosted our annual Thanksgiving food basket giveaway, the Gobbler Gathering. Taking place each year on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, the Gobbler Gathering allows ERM to provide more than 2,203 Tri-State families with a free sixty pound food basket.

 

So many struggling Tri-State families will go hungry this Thanksgiving without your help.

Your ERM’s 96th annual Gobbler Gathering Thanksgiving food basket giveaway will take place on November 20, 2018 – and your support is urgently needed.

Your generous gift today will ensure every family in need who attends can take home a 60-pound basket filled with delicious food for their Thanksgiving holiday.

In addition to making a heartfelt gift, here are 4 other easy ways you can get involved in this year’s Gobbler Gathering:

  • Host a food drive to collect needed Gobbler Gathering food items. You can drop off food donations at ERM’s main campus (500 East Walnut Street, Evansville, IN 47713) up until Friday, November 16, or call us to make arrangements to pick up food collections of more than 500 items.

  • Help sponsor this year’s Gobbler Gathering with your generous gift of $200, $500, $1,000, or $2,500 to help cover the general operating expenses for this massive celebration. If you are interested in being a sponsor, please call Chris-Michael Morrison, Vice-President of Development, at (812) 962-6701.

  • Participate in our 7th annual Drumstick Dash run/walk, which takes place on Saturday, November 10, 2018 – all proceeds benefit the Gobbler Gathering! Click here to register.
