On Monday, November 20, 2017 the Prescott Valley Police Department will be participating in the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual “Flying High Turkey Drive” to benefit the Yavapai Food Bank. This will occur at Fry’s Grocery Store on Glassford Hill Road in Prescott Valley. The goal is to collect 2,500 turkeys to benefit local food banks and help less fortunate people have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
From noon to 6 p.m. Prescott Valley Chamber CEO Marnie Uhl will be perched in Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority ladder trucks at the PV Fry’s store encouraging everyone via live radio remotes with KKLD 95.9FM, KVRD 105.7FM, and KQST-FM Q 102 and in person to donate turkeys.
For each five turkeys donated the ladder will be raised a foot in the air. The goal is that by 6 p.m. she will be flying high over the store at 100 feet. Assisting at the location, along with PVPD, is the National Wildlife Turkey Federation Yavapai Yelpers, Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority, the Prescott Valley Chamber Ambassadors, Board and staff, and the official Chamber Turkey Matt Zurcher. Monetary donations to purchase turkeys and all the trimmings will be gratefully accepted.
