Forty-five volunteers carved 100 turkeys and prepared dozens of toiletry gift bags for the 700 homeless men and women expected to celebrate Thanksgiving Day at Camillus House, a downtown Miami homeless shelter.
Gregg Zalkin, senior manager, global destinations & sourcing, Carnival Corp. & plc, is the project leader for the annual turkey carving F.U.N. Team event.
Carnival F.U.N. Team was established by the Carnival Foundation in 1997 as a grassroots organization that provides employees opportunities to venture into the community and offer help where it is needed most.
Rather than simply donating money or participating in company-sponsored events, the F.U.N. Team is run by employees who seek community service organizations on their own and interact with them on a more personal level. Activities typically take place on a weekly basis throughout South Florida.
