On November 22, the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis will distribute 1,900 free turkeys to needy area residents thanks to a major sponsorship by TIAA, a financial services provider, and Schnucks Supermarkets.

However, thanks to a new partnership with TIAA, the League was able to continue the Thanksgiving tradition.


“We are very thankful to TIAA for agreeing to support the Turkey Giveaway which has helped thousands of needy families have Thanksgiving Dinner over the years,” said Michael P. McMillan, president and CEO of the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis.
