PORTERVILLE, CA – Eagle Mountain Casino has donated 100 turkeys to The Salvation Army of Tulare County for families in need of a Thanksgiving meal. The official turkey distribution date for Tulare County will be Nov. 21 for pre-registered families.
“We are so appreciative of Eagle Mountain Casino’s generous continued donation,” said Hollie Slater, Donor Relations Director at The Salvation Army Golden State Division. “The rising prices, along with the shortages, was going to make it very difficult for families to purchase a turkey for Thanksgiving and we are thankful for Eagle Mountain Casino’s generous donation during these difficult times.”
“We have been supportive of this cause for many years, and I know turkey prices have been through the roof this year and a national turkey shortage,” said Ador Cardenas, Marketing Director at Eagle Mountain Casino. “We ordered early as we wanted to be able to do our annual donation to The Salvation Army.”
In addition to the donated turkeys, a full box of trimmings and canned goods will be included for families in need to enjoy a full Thanksgiving dinner.
“Thank you to Eagle Mountain Casino for their support every year and, because of their support, many families will have a better Thanksgiving sharing a hot and nutritious meal,” said Major Julio Vasquez, Core Officer for The Salvation Army of Tulare County.
