Vee Quiva Casino Collects More than 100 Turkeys For St. Mary’s Holiday Food Boxes
St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance would like to thank the team members at Vee Quiva Casino who pitched in to gather over 100 turkeys to donate the Food Bank last week to help put a dent in the shortage of more than 3,000 turkeys for our Holiday Food Boxes.
Because of companies like Gila River Gaming Enterprises and Vee Quiva Casino, St. Mary’s was able to reach its goal of including a turkey in each of the 10,000 boxes distributed in the week leading up to Thanksgiving.
Vee Quiva General Manager, Carolyn Thompson helped lead the effort – and even took pies in the face from her team members after they reached and surpassed the 100-turkey goal.
“St. Mary’s Food Bank does great work throughout the community and we wanted to do what we could to give back during a time we know they are in great need,” said Thompson.
Thank you Vee Quiva Casino and thank you Carolyn – we hope all that whipped cream washed out!
