Eleven Years of Giving!

Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon with David Swirnow.

On Saturday, November 17th , the "Our Family to Your Family" program, led by the Baltimore-based Swirnow family, celebrated its 11th Anniversary by distributing more than 23,000 turkey dinners to needy families throughout Baltimore .

Launched in 1997 by Richard A. Swirnow, Developer of the Inner Harbor properties at HarborView, the program has grown into a multi-generational effort thanks to the involvement of his son David E. Swirnow, President of Swirnow Building Systems; daughter-in-law Beth; and grandchildren Michael and Jennifer.

"The 'Our Family to Your Family' program has become a tradition all by itself," said David Swirnow. "Our employees, sponsors, volunteers and of course all the non-profit organizations look forward to gathering on the Saturday before Thanksgiving for the food distribution. It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it!"

This year's distribution was made even more special by the appearance of Sheila Dixon, Mayor of Baltimore City, who stopped by to express her gratitude for the donation of turkey dinners to the Mayor's Office of Economic Development.

The program distributes traditional Thanksgiving dinners in the form of "Adopt A Turkey" gift baskets to participating non-profit organizations who ensure that the food reaches needy families. Each basket contains a 14-15 pound turkey, 5 pounds of potatoes, a can of green beans, cranberry sauce, gravy mix and dinner rolls.

Recipients of the baskets this year will include disabled, unemployed, and elderly residents, but needy families continue to be what the program is all about. "Our Family to Your Family is unique in that our purpose is to provide a family package, to be cooked at home to focus on allowing families to be together in their own homes at this traditional time," said Richard Swirnow. "We want to focus on families and family traditions."

"Our program has reached some of the city's neediest residents in the past ten years," said David Swirnow. "In 2007, we're happy to do it again."
