The Big Give Turkey Drive hit goal of 5,000 turkeys for Salvation Army!
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Arizonans can always be counted on to help families in need, especially during the holidays. Arizona’s Family and Fry’s have teamed up for this year’s Big Give Turkey Drive benefiting The Salvation Army.
Fry’s has made it super simple for you to make a donation. Just look for the $10 scan card (below) when you check out. It doesn’t get any easier to help an Arizona family that might be struggling to make ends meet.
“This is really an exciting day,” Fry’s Food Stores spokesperson Pam Giannonatti told Tess Rafols early Tuesday morning. “We’re excited to raise lots of dollars to turn them into turkeys that will go to The Salvation Army.”
“If they go ahead and purchase a donation today [Nov. 22], they’ll get a 10%-off coupon on their receipt that’s redeemable Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of this week on a one-time purchase,” Giannonatti explained. “It’s a win-win for everyone - giving back and giving back to them.”
If you can’t swing $10 right now, there are $1 and $5 scan cards, as well, for the Holiday Food Drive that runs through Jan. 1, 2023. There’s another option, too.
“They can go ahead and pick up some non-perishable food items while they’re shopping and put them right in the bin,” Giannonatti said. Those bins are at the front of every Fry’s store.
The money and donations of non-perishable food items will help restock the shelves at Arizona food banks.
Arizona families need your help more than ever!
“For the first time in over six years, we have hit the capacity of what we’re able to do for our Christmas distribution,” Maj. Sybil Smith of The Salvation Army said. “The need has definitely gotten greater. We’re so thankful to Fry’s for doing this Big Give Turkey Drive that’s providing, hopefully, 5,000 turkeys for people throughout our community who are in need.”
There are 126 Fry’s food stores throughout Arizona.
