2017 Give a Gobble Turkey Drive

Announcing the 2017 Give a Gobble Turkey Drive!

We’re hoping you can join us this year.

Fast Facts about Give A Gobble: The WBAEFS serves as a critical resource of food and support for those experiencing hunger in our community:

  • Serving as many as 600 families on any given month.
  • 400 families received a Thanksgiving meal last year, an increase of 14% over 2015.
  • 7% of those receiving a meal were seniors and nearly half were children.
  • The Give A Gobble Turkey Drive allows community members to support their neighbors by purchasing a Thanksgiving meal for a local family in need. 

In addition to promoting Give A Gobble through the traditional media outlets (social media, the White Bear Press, local magazines, etc.) the WBAEFS will highlight the event on Give to the Max Day, a one-day, online giving event created by GiveMN to rally support for important causes that make Minnesota the best place to live. By joining these efforts, we can increase the impact of support during this holiday season. Please read through the attached sponsorship opportunities and choose a level that works best for you.

Here is what Anna Bosak, Community Affairs Director at H.B Fuller has to say about Give A Gobble:

“H.B. Fuller sponsored Give a Gobble for the first time in 2016. We were impressed with the impact of the event, and appreciated the promotion on social media, but it was also a fantastic volunteer opportunity. Our team had a great time and had the chance to get to know each other outside the office, while giving back to their community.”

Thank you for your time and consideration.  Attached, please find, 2017 sponsorship information, 2016 Give A Gobble Flyer, and the WBAEFS 2016 Annual Report. Please contact me by phone at (651) 407-5372 or by email at andrea@whitebearfoodshelf.org to discuss this opportunity further.
