Each year, our staff generously donate their time to organize the Annual Eastport Turkey Drive. It’s one of the ways we give back to the community, and this year, despite the added challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we raised $21,350.00 and bought 650 turkeys, sacks of potatoes, stuffing, bread, frozen vegetables, and dessert!
We are grateful for the following testimonials of our efforts, and to these organizations for allowing us to be part of their Christmas outreach.

Dear Andrew and Lori,
I wanted to send you a letter expressing our sincere gratitude for the Eastport Financial Group's unwavering commitment to the annual Turkey Dinner give away in the Dartmouth North Community.
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for individuals and families, but having a hot turkey dinner during the holidays should not be one of them. I commend your ability to pivot and find an alternative solution to ensure the success of the program despite the obstacles the pandemic has presented.
Your generous contribution to the community over the past three years has meant that families in Dartmouth North have been able to gather around the table and celebrate the holidays with joy and comfort.
Thank you for exemplifying the true spirit of Christmas in a time of such great need.
