Elk Grove Food Bank Services 2012 Annual Turkey Drive | Community
It’s hard to imagine Thanksgiving without a roasted turkey. Yet with the rising food costs, a Thanksgiving celebration may be out of reach for more than 800 families in Elk Grove. With support from the community, the Elk Grove Food Bank Services (EGFBS) has the programs in place to provide turkeys to those in need.
According to Marie Jachino, EGFBS Executive Director, individuals, businesses and organizations can help bring families together around the holiday table. These generous contributions can make a real difference in the lives of families struggling in this difficult economic climate. Elk Grove residents can help their local Food Bank this Thanksgiving these following ways:
November 5-19: Turkey Drive
9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
EGFBS facility – 9820 Dino Drive, Suite 140
Please consider dropping off a frozen turkey, chicken or any non-perishable side dish such as potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, stuffing, etc.
“In times of uncertainty, helping families come together for Thanksgiving has never been so important,” said Jachino.
