ST. MARY’S FOOD BANK ALLIANCE EXPANDS 4th ANNUAL ‘SUPER SATURDAY’ TURKEY DRIVE TO 12 LOCATIONS AROUND THE VALLEY and 2 LOCATIONS IN FLAGSTAFF FOR 2010
Help the Food Bank Reach Its Goal of Collecting 6,000 Turkeys This Year; Enter for a Chance To Win One of 14 $250 US Airways Flight Vouchers
The holiday season brings the return St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance’s most popular food drive – our “Super Saturday” pre-Thanksgiving turkey collection effort.
“Super Saturday 2010″ is set for November 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the site locations expanded this year to 12 around the Valley and two more in Flagstaff. Our special thanks to Albertsons and Harkins Theatres for serving as our Super Saturday drop-off locations this year. The Food Bank provides holiday meals for more than 50,000 people in the week leading up to Thanksgiving and is hoping to collect more than 6,000 turkeys during Super Saturday to get a big head start!
The Food Bank is anticipating requests for a record 30,000 Holiday Food Boxes – each containing a turkey and other assorted holiday dinner items – to allow needy families around the Valley the chance to enjoy the comforting tradition of a holiday meal.
In addition to turkeys, all other non-perishable food items as well as monetary donations will be gladly accepted. For every dollar donated, the food bank can distribute seven meals into the community. All donors are invited to register for a chance to win a $250 US Airways travel voucher (one winner per location).
