Davenport Evans was pleased to support the Feeding South Dakota Thanksgiving Turkey Drive again this year. On November 19, Davenport Evans lawyer Brendan Reilly presented Matt Gassen, Executive Director of Feeding South Dakota, with a $1,000 donation toward the effort.

About the Feeding South Dakota Turkey Drive

Feeding South Dakota hopes to bring in enough donations to provide 2,000 turkeys across the state. In addition to turkeys, in eastern South Dakota, Feeding South Dakota is also gathering donations of boxed mashed potatoes, gravy mixes, canned vegetables, and pies. A $15 donation can create one traditional Thanksgiving meal for a family in need.

“As we gather with friends and family this holiday season and reflect on the many blessings we have, the annual turkey drive provides an opportunity to express gratitude by giving back to others in need,” said Matt Gassen, Executive Director of Feeding South Dakota.

Feeding South Dakota will be accepting donations through November 26. Turkeys will be collected at all three food bank sites across the state: Sioux Falls, Pierre, and Rapid City as well as the Sioux Falls Food Pantry. Thanksgiving meal fixings will be collected in Sioux Falls at the food bank and at the pantry.

To contribute as an individual, family, with friends, or as a workplace, supporters can donate to the food drive online or purchase and deliver turkeys and ingredients to make traditional holiday side dish. Deliveries can be made to 3511 N. First Avenue, Sioux Falls, SD 57104, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
