Our History

The Turkey Club was founded by the late Jack Cruickshank in 2004 with a simple goal; help make a brighter, happier holiday season for those families who are struggling. Incorporated that same year as ‘The Turkey Club Society’ and registered as a Charity, the group of dedicated volunteers began providing Christmas turkey dinner hampers to those families in need.


In 2011 Jack and the rest of the Board of Directors of The Turkey Club Society brought society under the fundraising program of The Parker Street Food Bank.


The Turkey Club is now a full part of The Parker Street Food Bank operations and annual donations continue to assist needy families in the Halifax Region during the Christmas Season.

We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the generous help of our supporters in the business community. A special thank you to all the business and organizations helping us make a brighter holiday season for those families who are struggling.
