Turpin Cares is a philanthropic non-profit organization sponsored, in part, by Turpin Communication. We distribute food, hygiene products, and relief items to people in need on Chicago’s south side. Recipients include individuals, shelters, and other organizations doing good in the neighborhoods in which we live and work.
