Torklift Central is proud to organize the 4th Annual Kent Turkey Challenge in support of families in the Kent community. The Challenge is a competition between local businesses and organizations to collect and raise the most food and monetary donations for the Kent Food Bank.
Torklift Central began the Annual Kent Turkey Challenge in response to the Kent Food Bank losing the majority of their funding for the holiday season. The loss threatened to turn away Kent families that rely on the Kent Food Bank for food and financial support during the holidays.
The Annual Kent Turkey Challenge asked our community members to lend a helping hand, and they rose to the occasion.
Over the past three years, donations for the Annual Kent Turkey Challenge total $34,500 and 6,400 pounds of food for the Kent Food Bank feeding over 4,500 families.
The donations give hope and raise the spirits of families in the Kent area that would not otherwise be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal together. The Kent City Council supports the Turkey Challenge by composing and reading a proclamation on October 21.
This year, Torklift Central would like you to partner with even more Kent businesses in an effort to make the 4th Annual Kent Turkey Challenge even bigger and better than last year.
To sign up your business, find a donation box in your neighborhood, or donate online, visit the official Kent Turkey Challenge webpage.
