What is it?

On Thursday, November 15, 2018 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 4,092 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.

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.)
