SFBFS Turkey Drive – Thursday, November 21, 2019
What is it?
On Thursday, November 21, 2019 from 6:00am – 6:00pm., SFBFS and KCRA hold the largest one-day Turkey Drive in Sacramento. Every year there is a goal to collect as many turkeys as possible. Last year, State Employees donated 4,273 turkeys out of the 15,000 total turkeys donated by the community! This year, we want to top that number! Help us secure even more turkeys to help families in need!
Here is how it works:
Individuals or agencies can drop off turkeys on the way to work, at lunch or after work. There will be a dedicated drop off lane for State Employees. SFBFS will record the weight and number of turkeys to credit each agency accordingly. A form (located on the www.fooddrive.ca.gov Web site and on page 22 of this manual) is provided for you to turn in when donating turkeys to ensure the proper number of turkeys and weights are recorded. It is very important you turn in a form with turkey donations so we can keep track of State Employees weights.
Turkeys are in high demand during the holiday season and without these donations, many families will not have meat in their holiday food boxes. We also accept turkey dinner fixings such as potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, etc. (Please do not bring cash/check donations on this day. Refer to the Online Financial Donation procedures.)
