"Turkey Bucks" Are Available at the Burien Albertsons, but they look nothing like this.

Just a quick note from our friends at the Highline Area Food Bank: Turkey Bucks are available at the Burien Albertsons to help hungry neighbors who might otherwise not have a hot Thanksgiving Day meal to enjoy this year.

Here’s how it works: when you shop at Albertsons (the one just north of 160th on 1st Ave South) simply tell the cashier on your way out that you’d like to purchase some Turkey Bucks.

They come in $1, $5 and $10 denominations.

The great staff and crew there will gather up the funds raised and convert them to actual, hot Complete Holiday Meals for people in the Highline community to enjoy on Thanksgiving Day (which, by the way, is Thursday Nov. 27th).

Distribution of the meals is assisted by the folks at the Highline Area Food Bank.

Needless to say, the demand on food banks nationwide is considerably higher than at this time only a year ago. Last year this program served 107 needy families in our area, and we can almost guarantee that there are even more this year.

So every little bit helps.

Turkey Bucks will be on sale at Albertsons until Nov. 24th.

Questions? Here’s the number for the Highline Area Food Bank:  206-433-9900

Albertsons is located at 15848 1st Ave South, Burien (map below):
