CAMPAIGN: Shared Value

CONTENT: Blog

It’s part of our DNA...sharing our time, talent and treasure with those most in need in the communities Avista serves. This year is no exception.

The bright smiling face of KREM2’s Tom Sherry can only be matched by the warmth and thankfulness of those who receive Thanksgiving dinners during the annual Tom’s Turkey Drive each year.
Avista employees and the Avista Credit Union donated $8,900 which was matched by the Avista Foundation for a total donation of $17,800. These funds help provide approximately 11,000 meals – the goal for this year. That amount would feed 40,000 – 50,000 people (based on 4-6 servings per meal). Avista’s total donation will pay for 890 meals, thus feeding 3,600 to 5,300 individuals.
Avista’s history with Tom’s Turkey Drive dates back to the very beginning. Avista was one of the first companies to join with Sherry in this annual event. Once we were on board, other companies wanted to join, too. It’s a program that aligns with Avista’s strategy of supporting community vitality.
