Help a Hungry Family this Thanksgiving
We are two weeks away from Thanksgiving and are far from reaching our goal of collecting 18,000 turkeys for families in need this season. Thanks to donations from H-E-B, The USAA Foundation, Valero Energy Foundation, and others, the Food Bank has secured about 4,000 turkeys. Now we need the community to step up to the challenge to help us reach our goal.
“Thanksgiving is the one meal of the year that is remembered for a lifetime and we are trying to create those memories for families in need in our community,” said Eric S. Cooper, President/CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank.” Through the Great Turkey Challenge, the community can support our efforts and get some exercise in as well.”
As part of the Great Turkey Challenge, the San Antonio Food Bank and H-E-B will be holding a 5K run/walk chip-timed event on Thanksgiving morning. Registration is $20, and participants can pledge additional donations in $10 increments. For every $10 generated by donations, the San Antonio Food Bank will provide one turkey to a needy family this holiday season.
Visit the The Great Turkey Challenge website for more information and to register. Together we can help make this a joyous Thanksgiving to those in need.
