In the Thanksgiving holiday season alone, Butterball has provided turkey for nearly 150,000 people through a variety of non-profits, military bases and local community organizations across North Carolina, Arkansas and Missouri. Specific giving events last week included:
- On Thursday, November 21, Butterball proudly hosted an event to serve those in need in the Goldsboro, North Carolina community in partnership with Operation BBQ Relief and the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. The event served more than 700 meals to the House of Fordham in Goldsboro, which the Goldsboro Piggly Wiggly also made possible via pumpkin pie donations. Supporting the communities in Butterball’s own backyard is important to the company, especially near the Thanksgiving holiday.
- On Friday, November 22, Butterball donated 400 Butterball turkeys on behalf of North Carolina Governor Cooper to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. This donation will go towards local agencies who are serving families in need this holiday.
