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. 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 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.
Our annual fundraiser takes place every October at the Best Western on Appleway. Thank you to all who supported our 2014 event and made it possible for TFA to donate $11,500 worth of food to the food bank. In addition to turkeys, TFA’s charter allows for us to contribute other items that are in need. Last year, it was determined that there were going to be enough turkeys so we donated key ingredients of the thanksgiving meal, such as potatoes, gravy, stuffing, pumpkin, etc. Because of this, we were able to donate a total of $18,000 during 2014. This would not have been possible without the awesome community of the CDA area. THANK YOU!!!
