(1) Families can go online to the Westside Food Bank’s virtual turkey drive and donate. Go to WestsideFoodBankCA.org, and under the “How to Help” drop-down, select “Turkey Drive” and shop away! After you make your selections and pay for your items, the site will ask you to select your school, so make sure you select Franklin Elementary (note, you want to select the “Turkey Drive” and NOT the “Virtual Food Drive”). It’s a fun, interactive experience that you can do with your kids: help them shop in the “virtual” store to purchase turkeys and other traditional Thanksgiving food items for those in need; or
(2) On Tuesday, November 21 from 8:00 to 8:45am, families can bring frozen, whole, uncooked turkeys to the Idaho valet or the Montana kindergarten gate, where volunteers will have turkey barrels ready to collect your donations. We know some of you love going to the market with your kids and buying those frozen turkeys, so even though the turkey drive is online again this year, we still wanted to make sure we gave you that option as well!
