PHOENIX — The annual “Frozen Turkey Saturday” donation collection event hosted by the Phoenix Rescue Mission is set for this weekend at the Hope for Hunger Food Bank in Glendale.

The nonprofit aims to collect 1,500 turkeys to be delivered to families during its Thanksgiving Outreach Event and for the Hope for Hunger Food Bank.

Participants can drop off turkeys and nonperishable holiday foods from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The food bank is located at 5605 N. 55th Ave.

The event is part of the Phoenix Rescue Mission’s annual “Hungry for Change” holiday campaign, which began in 2020.

“Holidays should be a time for love and laughter, but for families facing food insecurity, celebrating is often the last thing on their minds” said Ken Brissa, CEO.

“In addition to providing warm meals and food boxes with pantry items, Phoenix Rescue Mission will also give community members the chance to learn about educational opportunities, workforce development, job opportunities, counseling, case management, addiction recovery services and many other life-transforming resources.”

The Thanksgiving Outreach Event is set for Nov. 19 at Sullivan Elementary School in Phoenix from 9 a.m. to noon.
