As part of a fundraising campaign through the North Carolina State University Annual Giving Program, the Prestage family – who recently made a $10 million gift to endow the Department of Poultry Science – donated 200 turkeys to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

During the “Recent Grad Holiday Turkey Challenge,” if at least 300 recent NC State graduates made a gift to the university between Nov. 15 and Dec. 15, the Prestage family would donate 200 turkeys to the Food Bank. An alumni task force led the campaign, using email, social media and phone calls to secure the donations. The turkey challenge was a success, with participation by 328 donors (the total amount of money raised is not yet available).
