Cycling for Turkeys in Pocatello
The Cranksgiving Turkey Drive in Pocatello puts a unique and healthy “spin” on the Thanksgiving holiday. During the Holiday Season, people are giving their time, talents, and treasure to help ensure that Idahoans everywhere can enjoy a holiday meal. In Pocatello, they even do that on their bikes! You can help now by dropping off a turkey to either Barrie’s Ski and Sports at 624 Yellowstone Ave. or The Idaho Foodbank at 555 S 1st Ave. now until the morning of November 18th.
On November 18th, you can also participate in the fun by joining the bike ride parade to deliver the final turkeys that morning from Barrie’s Ski and Sports to The Idaho Foodbank warehouse. The ride begins at 10:00am. There will be a big crowd so come early and help us celebrate our generous Pocatello community. After the collection is complete, food boxes consisting of a turkey, potatoes, green beans, stuffing, corn, yams, and pie filling will be distributed to Eastern Idaho families in need at the Bannock County Event Center.
