We are a 501(c)(3) Northern Idaho based charity supporting the Community Action Partnership in Coeur d’Alene, Kootenai County, Idaho. Our goal is to support the food bank 365 days a year but particularly at Thanksgiving. Typically each Thanksgiving season there is a crisis due to a lack of turkeys. With over 1,300 families to feed, the magnificent job the food bank does year round becomes even more acute at Thanksgiving and with the average cost of a turkey approximately $20 their ability to maintain a sufficient supply is greatly strained.
At Turkeys For All, our objective is to raise enough money year round to be able to supply the food bank with enough birds to feed every family on their register. At a time when America gives thanks, we will be there to contribute and give thanks together. Every board member serves in a total voluntary capacity with no remuneration or fees of any kind. 100% of the money raised will go to buying food for those that need it.
We held our first fundraiser on Friday October 25, which was a great success. Jim reports that “$12,800 was raised, all put together in just 6 weeks by my amazing board of directors. Thanks also to the team from Mountain West bank, you guys rock! 100% goes towards buying food (primarily turkeys) at the Community Action Partnership food bank in Kootenai county. I am humbled by your efforts and generosity.”
