Beasley Media Group announces 102.9 WMGK-FM, in conjunction with City Team Philadelphia, will present the 20th Annual John DeBella Turkey Drop on Tuesday, November 23rd on The Kimmel Cultural Campus in front of the Kimmel Center Building (300 S Broad St) in Philadelphia.

“Throughout the pandemic, our commitment to serving the communities of Philadelphia never wavered. We partnered with local charities to host food and blood drives and served as a polling place during elections,” said Matías Tarnopolsky, president and CEO of The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Kimmel Center, Inc. “Now that the Kimmel Cultural Campus has fully reopened, we are excited to bring our communities together again in partnership with WMGK to spread the spirit of giving this holiday season.”

The John DeBella Turkey Drop is the largest, single day food gathering event in the City of Philadelphia. Last year’s collection raised over 12,000 turkeys.

Legendary morning personality John DeBella will broadcast live from 6 a.m.- 9 a.m. and will accept monetary as well as turkey donations onsite. In addition, members from the WMGK-FM on-air staff will simultaneously receive donations from 6a.m.- 9a.m. at twelve ACME Markets located across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.
