Local grocery partners with South Salt Lake Police Department to provide Thanksgiving meals
Salt Lake City, UT, 2016-Nov-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Fresh Market is bringing Thanksgiving to 25 Utah families this week through a partnership with the South Salt Lake Police Department. The local grocery store donated turkeys to the department’s Team Pal Thanksgiving Service Project, which provides Thanksgiving dinner to families in need throughout Salt Lake City.
“One of our biggest focuses is supporting our communities and helping those in need,” said Ryan Woodfield, sales manager for Associated Retail Operations, which operates Fresh Market. “We are grateful for the opportunity to make Thanksgiving happen for many members of the community in partnership with the Salt Lake City police department.”
This is the third year Fresh Market has participated in the service project, which provides turkeys and a box of items for a complete Thanksgiving meal. The police department and members of their Police Athletic League after-school program organize and distribute the boxes to families in Salt Lake City.
“South Salt Lake Police Athletic/Activities League (PAL) is grateful to Fresh Market for partnering with us for the last three years. This partnership has been priceless,” said PAL Director, Officer Jerry Silvia. “We have been able to prepare Thanksgiving for multiple families and help the youth learn the true meaning of giving with this project.”
