STORY OF HOPE AND THANKSGIVING TURKEY DRIVES – OCTOBER 30
STORY OF HOPE
Tough times bring out the best in many of us. Barb Kent and our logistics team saw that first-hand when a community-minded mom in Coulee City transformed a traffic safety grant into 8,000 pounds of top-quality Washington potatoes and onions to help feed hungry families in Adams, Grant, Ferry and Lincoln counties. See Barb’s account of this inspirational story, originally posted in the Capital Press.
THANKSGIVING TURKEY DRIVES
Even as COVID-19 continues to disrupt daily life in so many ways, you can make it possible for families to gather around their tables to celebrate the Thanksgiving tradition.
Spokane’s 21st annual Tom’s Turkey Drive will look a little different this year, but we’re counting on our generous community to support at least 11,000 Thanksgiving meals – a turkey and all the fixings – for people in need. Although we’re unable to host the traditional two-day drive in person at local Rosauers stores, the stores themselves will make it easy for their customers to donate by purchasing complete Thanksgiving meals for $20. You can also help by donating here.
The fifth annual Mid-Columbia and Yakima Valley Turkey Drive will provide Thanksgiving meal supplies for 2,200 families. Your $30 donation will provide a box of food with the ingredients for a holiday meal, including a turkey. Click here to donate toward the food supplies for meal boxes with all the ingredients for a full Thanksgiving dinner for Mid-Columbia and Yakima Valley families.

Martha learned the joy of service early in life. It’s a lesson the longtime educator has shared with her three children and students. But in the past year, she discovered a new outlet: serving as a Second Harvest core volunteer and member of the Kay Porta Legacy Society.
Today more than 150 adoptive organizations enable Second Harvest, in partnership with At The Core, to provide Bite2Go to nearly 8,500 elementary, middle and high school students in Spokane, the Tri-Cities and a growing list of rural communities.
However you choose to honor Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy, we invite you to do something intentional and purposeful to help your community.
