AZADI Fine Rugs, 7001 N. Scottsdale Road at No. 124, is announcing the business will be donating 168 turkeys in the month of November.
At the beginning of October, AZADI kicked off their “Living is Giving” campaign and committed to donating a turkey for every visit to AZADI Fine Rugs in each of their locations, according to a press release.
As a result, AZADI is donating 168 turkeys in all: 37 in Sedona to the Sedona Community Food Bank, 50 in Jackson Hole, to Hole Food Rescue, and 30 in Telluride to Telluride Angel Baskets, and 50 in Scottsdale to St. Mary’s Food Bank. AZADI selected St. Mary’s Food Bank to be the recipient of the turkeys because of the work they do to fight hunger in the greater Phoenix community.
St. Mary’s is the world’s first food bank, founded in 1967, the press release states.
Today, St. Mary’s is one of the largest food banks in the United States and has had a tremendous impact on the state of Arizona. Currently, 28.2 percent of children in Arizona face hunger and 1 in 3 children in Arizona live in poverty. St. Mary’s Food Bank assists the communities of Arizona in many ways, including the distribution of Emergency Food Boxes, The Community Kitchen, Child Nutrition Programs, and the Mobile Pantry.
“We are honored to offer our support to St. Mary’s Food Bank and hope that our contribution will impact many families in need this holiday season,” said AZADI Fine Rugs owner David Neishabori in a release.
