Buy-A-Bird™ is a fundraising campaign intended to supplement the physical donation of holiday meals to Food Banks during the holidays. Originated at St. Mary’s Food Bank, the Buy-A-Bird turkeys are stuffed animal dolls that donors can “adopt” for a $15 tax-deductible donation. This donation allows the Food Bank to purchase holiday meal items while simultaneously creating a unique giving and gift buying experience. Each turkey comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and can be used as a corporate or personal gift. For the first three years, the food bank introduced a new turkey [Toby, Trudy & baby Timmy]. This year, a new superhero turkey, “Captain Drumstick” is being introduced.
In 2003, the Buy-A-Bird Alliance program includes Arizona Association of Food Banks, Borderland Food Bank, Care and Share Food Bank, Community Food Bank, Desert Mission Food Bank, Southeast Arizona Food Bank, St. Mary’s Food Bank, United Food Bank, Westside Food Bank and Yuma Food Bank.
Captain Drumstick™, the Buy-A-Bird Alliance’s 2003 Hunger-Fighting Superhero, is patrolling cities and towns throughout Arizona to bring holiday meals to every needy family’s table. After five years, Toby Turkey™ has not given up on his sworn mission to eliminate hunger. Now, with the need for food growing, Toby has adopted the persona of Captain Drumstick?, sworn to avenge empty plates and stomachs throughout Arizona!
To most of the populace he’s Toby Turkey?, plump roast turkey searching for mouths to feed. But when stomachs growl he hears the call and transforms into Captain Drumstick™ filling those bellies!
Soaring onto plates! Popping thermometers! He’s bursting from ovens and making holiday meals possible for families throughout Arizona!
Could you be Captain Drumstick™’s sidekick? He cannot fight this tremendous battle alone and it is you that can help. The purchase of an exclusive Captain Drumstick™ stuffed animal [available only through Arizona food banks], designed to scale from this Herculean Hero, will keep hunger from invading dinner tables all over the state. Your $15 dollar tax-deductible donation will provide enough for a holiday meal with all the trimmings for a needy family.
Each year, the community has demonstrated an overwhelming display of support for the program. So join the fight to eliminate hunger! Help Captain Drumstick™ and Arizona Food banks bring holiday meals to every plate in the state.
