In lieu of turkey donations we are asking our community to contribute to our TURKEY FUND DRIVE. At this time we serve an average of 400 families every week and often the holiday weeks bring even more families to our door. Many of you know that our facility is extremely small and space is limited for storage especially freezer space. Last year we had turkeys all over town in different freezers and were shuttling birds for a couple of weeks. The turkey fund will allow the Food Bank to purchase the right amount of turkeys for our neighbors. The holiday sale on turkeys typically starts the second week of November and that does not give us much time to collect the 350+ turkeys that the we will need in order to distribute by November 14th. Make a donation on-line or you mail a check to 122 E 3rd St, North Bend, WA 98045. (Suggested donation for the purchase of 1 turkey is $15.00)
