Each year we mark the anniversary of Turner’s founding—our Founders’ Day—with a company-wide day of community service in which we actively engage in a wide variety of community partnerships focused on youth and education, health and welfare, and improving the viability of local businesses. Our Founders’ Day of Service is a natural continuation of those efforts, as well as a fitting way to honor the company’s long history of community outreach and involvement.
This year, we are proud to partner with Food Lifeline whose mission is to feed people experiencing hunger today while working to end hunger for tomorrow.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented demand for food at food banks, shelters, and meal programs in our region. Driven by unemployment and poverty, the need for food in our region has doubled (and in some cases tripled).
When you donate to Food Lifeline, you make the following possible:
- $25 creates 125 meals and snacks for kids when school lunches aren’t available
- $50 helps to stock food bank shelves with culturally relevant food and pantry items for immigrant and refugee families
- $100 provides dairy, meat and produce to low income families at a pop-up mobile food distribution
