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.

As a result, AZADI donated 227 turkeys in all — 59 in Jackson Hole to Hole Food Rescue, 31 in Telluride to Telluride Angel Baskets, 71 in Sedona to the Sedona Community Food Bank, and 66 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 it does to fight hunger in the Phoenix community.
St. Mary’s is the world’s first food bank, founded in 1967. 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.
