The number of local businesses that continue to join the 4th Annual Kent Turkey Challenge is truly inspiring. So far 66 businesses have joined the effort. We received an email from our local Great American Casino recently requesting a Turkey Challenge donation box. They also extended a special offer that is sure to make an impact in the number of families we are able to feed at the Kent Food Bank this Thanksgiving.
In addition to collecting canned food donations at their 20500 108th Ave. SE location in Kent, Wash., Great American Casino will match all monetary donations collected for the Kent Turkey Challenge at their business.
The impetus for this amazing act of kindness is owed in large part to Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke who made a televised proclamation announcing the Turkey Challenge this month. Great American Casino’s management contacted us to join the Challenge after viewing the proclamation on local television.
This is a prime example of how the Turkey Challenge continues to grow each year with grass-roots support from Kent citizens and local businesses. The importance of the cause truly speaks for itself.
We want to extend our thanks to Great American Casino, Mayor Cooke and the Kent City Council for their continued support of the Kent Turkey Challenge. With your help we are closer than ever to making sure no one is turned away hungry from the Kent Food Bank this Thanksgiving.
