On Saturday, November 22, 2014, St. Mary Food Bank Alliance held its eighth annual Super Saturday Turkey Drive 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 this holiday season. Last year, through the generosity of businesses and individuals, St. Mary's holiday food box distribution provided meals for an estimated over 130,000 Arizonans battling with hunger.
This was Owens & Perkins' second year participating in the Super Saturday Turkey Drive. Our Owens & Perkins team was stationed at the Albertsons on the corner of Thomas and Scottsdale Roads (across the street from our office). During our three hour shift we raised $430 (which will provide an estimated 3,000 meals), collected 6 turkey gift cards and 76 turkeys (15 more turkeys than what we collected last year). In addition, we collected an entire bin full of canned foods items. This year, Kapoor Foundation pledged to donate one turkey for every turkey collected on Super Saturday. Therefore, through the efforts of volunteers and the generosity of the individuals who donated turkeys, 152 turkeys were collected at our Albertson's location to help feed those in need.
We were excited to participate and grateful to the many people who donated. We are deeply honored to help families in need.
Owens & Perkins extends our wish to everyone for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
