2019 ANNUAL TURKEY DRIVE Powered by Pinnacle Estate Properties, Inc. from Alex Gandel on Vimeo.
2019 was another fantastic year for our Annual Turkey Drive. As I joined Pinnacle Estate Properties, Inc. in mid-February after 24 years with my previous company, the Turkey Drive is now known as The Turkey Drive powered by Pinnacle Estate Properties, Inc.
With the passion and commitment that has existed from the very beginning over 20 years ago, the agents, staff, and ownership of Pinnacle, along with the countless volunteers, corporate and individual sponsors, helped to create one of the most successful and fulfilling events in the Turkey Drive’s history.
With only two offices involved for 2019, as compared to 12 offices for 2018, we were able to provide groceries to 1,815 qualified families, which equates to approximately 18,150 people for their Thanksgiving dinner. Each family received a 15 to 18-pound turkey, two cans of green beans, one can of cream of mushroom soup, one box of stuffing, one package of fresh rolls, and one 5-pound bag of potatoes.
As we have for so many years, we provided groceries to 750 families at the Seabee Base in Port Hueneme as our way of thanking them for their service to our country, we helped 400 families in the Conejo Valley, and we also helped 665 families in Simi Valley. Included in the Simi Valley numbers were 100 scholarship families at the Boys and Girls Club and 75 families who are assisted by Ventura County Health Services.
I want to sincerely and personally thank everyone for their time, talent, and treasure, and I cannot wait to see what we can accomplish in assisting families in 2020!
