AZADI Fine Rugs to donate 55 turkeys to local food bank

Thanks to the support of the community, AZADI Fine Rugs, 7001 N. Scottsdale Road, has announced it is donating 55 turkeys in the month of November to St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix.

At the beginning of October, AZADI kicked off its annual “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 140 turkeys in all: 35 in Jackson Hole to Teton Youth and Family Services, 20 in Telluride to Telluride Angel Baskets, 30 in Sedona to the Sedona Community Food Bank and 55 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 in their effort to fight hunger in the Phoenix community, a release states.

St. Mary’s food bank was founded in 1967. It is one of the largest food banks in the U.S. and has had an impact on the state of Arizona, a release states. Currently, 28.2 percent of children in Arizona face hunger and 1 in 3 children in Arizona live in poverty, per a release.

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,” AZADI Fine Rugs Owner David Neishabori said in a prepared statement.

AZADI Fine Rugs is committed both locally and globally to supporting communities it sees as its extended family. It believes part of building a business is building a legacy of giving. Locally, it has worked with numerous non-profits helping them to raise much-needed funds.
