What it’s about:
Each year Cherry Creek Media collects turkeys and money to donate to food banks in our community and in this, our 24th year, it’s no different. There is no way we could do it without the generous support of our community. Your donations of frozen turkeys and/or money, will stay right here in our communities, helping our friends and neighbors to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving meal with their families. To make a donation, please visit: Cherry Creek Media Studios (1600 North Avenue West – West of Russell Street, next to Conlin’s Furniture).
Donations will be accepted starting on Monday, November 12th – Friday, November 16th. Decker Truck Line has generously donated a refrigerated truck that will be here on premises to accept turkeys. Monetary donations will also be gratefully accepted.
Organizations benefiting from your generosity:
Darby Bread Box – Darby
Community Food Bank of Mineral County – Superior
Pantry Partners Food Bank – Stevensville
Haven House – Hamilton
Missoula Food Bank – Missoula
