Save Mart Supermarkets has been sponsoring the Sacramento Food Bank's annual Turkey Drive for years. It rained for much of the day, but the November 16th event broke the record for the most turkeys ... with 15,449 collected, break last year's record of 14,837.
Teams of volunteers from Sacramento-area stores also helped unload donations from vehicles that drove up to the food bank's collection site in the Oak Park neighborhood. At the end of the Turkey Drive, Save Mart made its traditional donation of 300 turkeys. The need is great in this community, and it was nice to see such an outpouring of support to make the Thanksgiving holiday brighter for so many families.
