Holiday Turkey Challenge goal exceeded!

Recent Grad Turkey Challenge13

We challenged 375 recent grads to make a gift to NC State between November 19 and December 19. We’re thrilled to report 441 recent grads joined in, surpassing the goal by 18%.

Thanks to the generosity of those that made a gift to NC State during that time frame, 200 turkeys from Prestage Farms were successfully donated to the Raleigh branch of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. These gifts had double the impact- helping both a family in need and NC State.

The challenge is over but it is not too late to support NC State. Make your gift today by clicking here.
