At the beginning of October, AZADI Fine Rugs and Bella Fine Goods kicked off their annual “Living is Giving” campaign and pledged to donate turkeys to those less fortunate this holiday season.
In addition, for each visit to AZADI Fine Rugs and Bella Fine Goods during the month of October, an additional turkey will be donated on the visitor’s behalf, according to a press release. Last year AZADI/Bella donated over 300 turkeys in all.
“We are donating turkeys in Scottsdale to St. Mary’s Food Bank, to The Sedona Community Food Bank, in Jackson Hole, Wyo. to Teton Youth & Family Services, and in Telluride, Colo. to Telluride Angel Baskets. We are honored to offer our support to the local charities in the communities where we are located and we hope that our contributions will impact many families in need this holiday season” AZADI owner David Neishabori, said in the release.
AZADI Fine Rugs is committed both locally and globally to supporting communities that it sees as its extended family. It believes that part of building a business is building a legacy of giving. Through involvement with local charities AZADI/Bella assist people in need and provide hope for a brighter future.
Neishabori selected St. Mary’s Food Bank to be the recipient of the turkeys because of the work it does in the effort to fight hunger in the Phoenix community.
St. Mary’s is the world’s first food bank, founded in 1967. Today, St. Mary’s is one of the largest food banks in the United States and has had a tremendous impact on the state of Arizona. Currently, 28.2% of children in Arizona face hunger and 1 in 3 children in Arizona live in poverty. St. Mary’s Food Bank assists the communities of Arizona in many ways, including the distribution of Emergency Food Boxes, The Community Kitchen, Child Nutrition Programs and the Mobile Pantry.
