Thanksgiving on the Mayflower, is a one-day fundraising and food drive to benefit the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona happening Thursday, November 17th at Sam's Club, 4701 N. Stone Ave.
 
The all day event runs from 5:30 AM to 6:00 PM and features the combined forces of 4 radio stations and 2 TV stations, encouraging the community to drive by and donate. We’ll be accepting donations of non-perishable food items and frozen turkeys and pies all day today. 
 
Did you know that for every $1 donated, the Community Food Bank can distribute enough food for over 4 meals? PLUS, every dollar donated during Thanksgiving on the Mayflower will be matched! Your gift truly helps the entire community.
