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.
Our annual fundraiser will take place on Friday October 17, 2014 at the Best Western on Appleway. Tickets are $25 and include a pasta dinner. We are also seeking items for our live and silent auction.
