The 100-degree temperatures are finally in Arizona’s rear-view mirror. That means it’s almost Turkey Time – and St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance’s Super Saturday is just around the corner!
St. Mary’s will hold its eighth annual Super Saturday Turkey Drive on Saturday, Nov. 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Food Bank locations in Phoenix and Surprise as well as 15 Albertsons locations around the Valley and Flagstaff in hopes of meeting what is anticipated to be an unprecedented need for the 2014 holiday season.
The Food Bank is anticipating requests for tens of thousands of holiday food boxes. Hopes remain that each will contain a turkey and other assorted holiday dinner items allowing families around the Valley and state the chance to enjoy the comforting tradition of a holiday meal. Last year, through the generous donations of businesses and private citizens in Arizona, St. Mary’s holiday food box distribution provided meals for an estimated 100,000 people battling with hunger in our state.
In addition to the goal of 7,000 turkeys, St. Mary’s will gladly accept any monetary or food donations (both perishable and non-perishable) on Super Saturday. All donors are invited to register for a chance to win one of two $500 US Airways Cash Value Gift Cards on the day of the event.
