Amado Food Bank Needs Help to Fill Food Boxes for the Holiday Season

The Amado Community Food Bank needs help to fill food boxes for the holiday season.  The Amado Food Bank will accept frozen turkey donations from October 3, 2012 through December 31, 2012.  The turkeys will be used to help fill holiday food boxes and without these donations some families may go without a main dish this holiday season.

The Amado Food Bank would appreciate donations of 8 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. This year’s goal is 800 frozen turkeys for families in need.

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 purchases.  Please specify that the donation is for the turkey drive.
