Turkey Shortage St. Mary's food Bank

The St. Mary’s food bank is asking for turkey donations. This is due to the Avian flu which took out millions of turkeys early this year. Food banks across Arizona are trying to catch up with the demand with just three weeks left until Thanksgiving.

According to St. Mary’s Food Bank, they are about 9,000 turkeys shy of what they need. If you would like to donate a turkey, St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix and Surprise will schedule a pickup. You can call 602-242-FOOD. 

They are also accepting $10 to $12 cash donation which can put a turkey on someone’s plate this holiday season.

As the nation embraces the ongoing 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the Vietnam War, Peoria, Ariz. is the starting gate for one artist's effort to honor an icon of that era. Announcing the inaugural exhibition of Take Me Home Huey, a sculptural installation created by artist Steve Maloney from the remains of a historic U.S. Army Huey helicopter that was shot down in 1969 during a medical rescue in the Binh Long province of Vietnam. 

 A multi-media art project, Take Me Home Huey was fashioned from the remains of a Huey helicopter  #174  that was found in an Arizona boneyard. Maloney has partnered with Light Horse Legacy (LHL), a Peoria based 501(c) 3 non-profit organization and USA Vietnam War Commemorative Partner focused on supporting veterans with PTSD. 

Evening presentation (6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m.): Panel discussion on Post-Traumatic Stress and Art for Healing and Removing the Stigma of PTSD, with artist Steve Maloney, Dave Barron of Light Horse Legacy, Christian Cooper of the West Valley Vet Center, and local veterans. (for adults)
