Amado Food Bank Asks for Turkey Donations During Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month and the Amado Community Food Bank is asking for donations for their annual turkey drive.  The Food Bank will accept donations from September 1 through September 30, 2011.  The turkeys will be used to help fill the holiday food boxes.  Without these donations families may go without meat this holiday season.

The Amado Food Bank would appreciate donations of 10 to 12 pound frozen turkeys to benefit families in the Amado, Tubac, Arivaca, Elephant Head, Tumacacori, Rio Rico and Lakewood areas.

Turkey donations may be dropped off at the Amado Community Food Bank at 28720 South Nogales Highway in Amado, Arizona.  Office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  On Thursdays the office is open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

Turkey donations will gladly be picked up by calling (520) 398-2479 or (520) 398-2942.  Monetary donations will also be accepted to make turkey

Help the Amado Community Food Bank during Hunger Action Month and donate frozen turkeys for families in need in your community.
