The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank faced significant challenges this Thanksgiving due to high pricing of turkeys and cutbacks on funding. That is when the Kenai Refinery Marathon Petroleum team came to our aid.
Thanks to the generous hearts of the employees as well as the Marathon Employee Match Program and Marathon Government and Public Affairs gift, the Food Bank was able to provide turkeys to our local community and a Thanksgiving feast in the Fireweed Diner.
In addition, the Kenai Peninsula community provided donations of turkeys and the rest of the Thanksgiving Dinner fixings. Many organizations and businesses have also been organizing food drives throughout the community providing much-needed food supplies.
Thank you for all the generosity that enabled hundreds of our neighbors to have a wonderful Thanksgiving Meal. The Food Bank is very grateful for your support and care of our community.
