Help St. Mary’s Reach Goal of Collecting 7,000 Donated Turkeys and Holiday Boxes
The 100-degree temperatures are finally in Arizona’s rear-view mirror. This 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 12th annual Super Saturday Turkey Drive, presented by Mobile Mini, on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Food Bank locations in Phoenix and Surprise as well as 28 Albertsons and Safeway locations around the Valley striving to meet the anticipated need for the 2018 holiday season.
The Food Bank distributed more than 11,000 Holiday Food Boxes in the three days leading up to Thanksgiving in 2017. Each year, hopes are that each will contain a turkey and other assorted holiday dinner items giving Arizona families the chance to enjoy the comforting tradition of a holiday meal.
In addition to helping reach the goal of 7,000 donated turkeys, St. Mary’s Food Bank staff and scores of volunteers 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 50,000 AAdvantage miles for Travel donated by American Airlines.
“As the CEO of one of Arizona’s largest publicly traded companies, I am proud to serve on the board of St. Mary’s Food Bank and roll up my sleeves on Super Saturday alongside hundreds of volunteers,” Mobile Mini President and CEO Erik Olsson said. “I will be joined by Mobile Mini employees and their families in helping combat hunger this holiday season.”
