THE HISTORY OF THE TURKEY DRIVE
It all began when one of our local community agencies announced to the community that they would not have enough resources to fill the Hamper program. Staff and volunteers of the Chamber lept to action, phoning members of the Chamber for support, and within 4 hours had raised the money to ensure that families and residents in need would receive a hamper.
We continue this tradition to this day with stupendous community volunteers and countless generous businesses. This fundraiser not only feeds those in need, but is here to take incredible financial pressures off both recipient organizations. The Salvation Army and the Cranbrook Food Bank give assistance year-round to those in our community, and our Turkey Drive allows them to focus on what they do best: helping individuals and families in our community.
♥ WE KNOW CRANBROOK IS A CITY FULL OF BIG HEARTS
