California State Assembly Member Kevin McCarty and California American Water will distribute 300 turkeys to local Sacramento residents as part of the 29th annual “Operation Gobble” program. The turkeys will be distributed on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at four locations in Sacramento. The turkeys were provided at cost by Save Mart and will benefit numerous causes throughout the Sacramento area.
“Operation Gobble” is a joint charitable venture between California water companies and local state legislators and is set to deliver thousands of turkeys to under-privileged families throughout the state this Thanksgiving holiday. Introduced in 1990, the unique program pairs the local knowledge of state legislators with the resources of the private sector to benefit those in need.
“Operation Gobble brings joy to those in need this Thanksgiving,” said Assemblyman McCarty. “Without the hard work of our local non-profits and California American Water, Operation Gobble would not be possible. This opportunity allows me to give back to my community and provide meals to those who would have otherwise gone without.”
During the program, participating investor-owned water companies like California American Water provide turkeys and transportation in partnership with local elected officials who offer local expertise in directing the donations to community food banks, churches and other non-profit organizations.
“California American Water has more than 80 employees who live and work here in Sacramento,” said Evan Jacobs, California American Water’s director of regulatory policy and case management. “We are proud to have this opportunity to give back to our community and help those who really need it this holiday season.”
Millions of Californians lack sufficient resources to feed themselves on a regular basis. Many of these residents are low income families that will not be able to afford a Thanksgiving meal.
Thanks to the efforts of California American Water, Assemblymember McCarty and our non-profit partners, Sacramento families will now have a Thanksgiving meal this Holiday season.
