Advocating for and serving the youth in our communities. Together, we are making a difference.


Turkey Giveaway



One of the first events hosted by The David Amerson Foundation was the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway. This event is an opportunity for the Foundation to support families in our local community. In 2013, we donated 78 turkeys to underserved families around the Greensboro area. During the event, turkeys and canned goods provided by the community were distributed at Hayes-Taylor Memorial YMCA, local churches, and food pantries. Autographed memorabilia provided by David were raffled for donors in attendance.


Each year, our goal is to help even more families enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with a home-cooked meal. You too can be a part of making a difference in someone’s life this Thanksgiving. Show your support by donating turkeys, sponsoring gift cards, by making monetary or in-kind donations.


This year the David Amerson Defending Hands Foundation plans to give away 400+ turkeys for the Thanksgiving holidays. We will be hosting our first giveaway at Noah’s Ark Angels Daycare Community Appreciation Day on Saturday November 11, 2017, from 10 am to 1 pm. Noah’s Ark Angels Daycare is located at 422 Julian Avenue in Thomasville, NC.


On Monday November 20, 2017, the David Amerson Defending Hands Foundation will be hosting another turkey giveaway. We will start off by giving turkeys and food boxes to designated families in need at a Greensboro area elementary, middle and high school. This will be followed by a community giveaway later in the day at the Glenwood Recreation Center, located at 2010 Coliseum Blvd. in Greensboro, NC, from 4 pm to 7 pm.



The David Amerson Defending Hands Foundation would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday.
