Celebrating 30 Years of Turkey Tuesday!

What is “Turkey Tuesday?”
Not only is it the nation’s largest one-day turkey drive—held annually the Tuesday before Thanksgiving—but it’s also a month-long collaboration between Bashas’ Family of Stores, 12 News, St. Vincent de Paul and our generous store guests to help feed families in need during the Holiday season.  Now 30 years strong, the impact of Turkey Tuesday on Arizonans statewide is inestimable.  If you want to experience the true spirit of Thanksgiving, join us in this grand tradition as we once again set out to bless our own friends and neighbors. 

Join us LIVE with 12News and St. Vincent de Paul on Tuesday, November 22nd from 4pm – 7pm to celebrate 30 years of Turkey Tuesday at these locations ~

30 Days of Thanks

The holiday season is a time of reflection and an opportunity to focus on all the things we are grateful for and that help us to define every day purpose.  

We asked a few of our community leaders what they are thankful for and why Turkey Tuesday is special to them.
