Albertsons delivered 2,616 full turkey dinners to the Idaho Foodbank Thursday for Idahoan families in need.
As part of the “Turkey Bucks” campaign, shoppers at Albertsons all over the state added $1, $5 or $10 to their purchase totals to donate to Idaho families.
Thursday’s delivery was just the first of the season.
Meals will continue to arrive, with the “Santa Bucks” campaign adding opportunities for customers to give in late November and December.
“The generosity of Albertsons employees and customers is an inspiration and an example of what can be done when a community rallies together,” said President and CEO of the Idaho Foodbank Karen Vauk. “These meals will brighten holidays for people all over our state.”
