About Us


In 2005, George S. Yacoubian, Jr., founded the Society for Orphaned Armenian Relief (SOAR) (www.soar-us.org) to honor his oldest daughter, Liliana, who was adopted from Armenia in the spring of 2006.  In 2016, Liliana and her sisters (Sophie and Tessa) asked if they were limited to “only” helping orphaned Armenian children.  To show the girls that charity should extend beyond one’s nationality, George founded Turkey Taxi (EIN 36-4851053) in the fall of 2016 as a way of helping people closer to home.


Established in the fall of 2016, Turkey Taxi delivers care packages on Thanksgiving and Easter to homeless citizens living on the streets of Philadelphia.
