The Vice Chairman of the Elk Grove Food Bank Services has organized a satellite collection site at Raleys’s on the corner of Elk Grove and Franklin Boulevards to collect turkeys and other holiday foods for their clients. Jerry Braxmeyer saw record numbers of people utilizing the EGFBS in October and put together a supplemental Board of Directors’ Turkey Drive for Friday and Saturday, November 21st and 22nd at Raley’s.
“Gathering the family together over the holidays is important. We need to help those unable to provide themselves a holiday meal. If you are able, please consider donating a turkey to Elk Grove Food Bank,” Vice Chairman Braxmeyer said.
Donations at the event can be made in the form of cash to the Elk Grove Food Bank Services, the purchase of turkey, or by purchasing a Food For Families holiday bag which will got to a family served by the EGFSB. For more information, click here.
