Men's Turkey Fry

  • Holy Cross (Daniel Island) 299 Seven Farms Drive Charleston, SC, 29492 United States (map)

On the morning of Christmas Eve we are going to fry turkeys for those in need. We want you to help prep & fry while hanging out with Holy Cross guys. 

WHY? To be the hands and feet of Jesus this Christmas by providing some of those less fortunate than us with a fried turkey for Christmas dinner, with love from Holy Cross Church.

If you can help us, please come. If you’ve got kids, you’re encouraged to bring them along but there is no official child care so you’re responsible for keeping your kids safe! Christmas Eve morning is the lull before the joyous Christmas celebrations so come on out for what is sure to be a great time of fun and fellowship.

WHO DO WE SERVE? Humanities Foundation which manages Seven Farms Apartments across from Holy Cross DI is developing a list of people in need at Seven Farms Apartments along with another complex they manage in Charleston. They will distribute the turkeys to those in need in those housing complexes.

HOW CAN I HELP? Our objective is to fry 30-40 turkeys so we’ll need plenty of help. Here’s what we need:

  • At least 10 men who own a complete turkey frying set up to be on our cooking team. Our hope is that we’ll have at least ten turkey frying stations cooking until we’re done at noon.

  • We also need 8-10 people to prep the thawed turkeys for frying and to wrap the fried turkeys for delivery, etc.

  • Each person on the “prep crew” is also being asked to bring with you two 11-12 lbs. “THAWED” turkeys for cooking.

  • Can’t join us on Christmas Eve morning but you’d like to donate a 12-12 lb. “THAWED” turkey(s)? Please drop your turkey(s) off to us at Holy Cross DI between 8:00-9:00 AM Christmas Eve morning since we don’t have a place to store donated turkeys.
