2016 Operation Breakthrough Thanksgiving Dinner Drive and Turkey Donation

Waddell & Reed has long supported Operation Breakthrough and their mission to provide a safe, loving and educational environment for children in poverty and to empower their families through advocacy, emergency aid and education. While our employees extend their help to the organization in many different ways throughout the year, among the traditions they genuinely enjoy is gathering all of the necessary items for complete Thanksgiving meals.

This past November, Waddell & Reed employees assembled nearly 440 Thanksgiving "dinner boxes"to ensure a nourishing Thanksgiving dinner for some of Kansas City’s less-fortunate families.

Waddell & Reed also donated 330 turkeys to Operation Breakthrough.
