Annual Food Drive: 2000 Turkeys

Nov 04, 2016

Range Hosts Annual Food Collection This Month Along with a Special Event on Friday, November 18

Range has long supported the Greater Washington County Food Bank, and in particular the 2000 Turkeys campaign, which aims to put a turkey dinner on the table of the approximately 4,700 Washington County families being served each month by the Greater Washington County Food Bank.

While times are challenging for the gas industry and there have been cut backs, supporting the community is not something we intend to reduce, in fact just the opposite. Last year, Range employees were seeking to find new and creative ways to support critical services in Washington and the 2000 Turkeys campaign. This commitment led to the first ever Range Resources 2000 Turkeys Food Drive and Fundraiser.

With your help, Range’s all-in effort provided more than $100,000 towards the Washington County Food Bank in 2015 – a total that resulted in enough food for nearly 27,000 people.

Over the last seven years, Range has provided nearly $900,000, with about $600,000 directly from Range another $300,000 through fund raisers that we’ve held with vendors and business partners.

To cap off this effort off, Range employee volunteers will again host collection points in downtown Washington, Pa. and a booth near the Farmer’s Market, across from the Observer-Reporter, all day on Friday, November 18 to collect food and money to support 2000 Turkeys. Employees will also safely canvass roads and intersections during the morning, lunch and evening rush to collect additional funds. Also, Non-perishable food, cash and even credit cards are also accepted as part of this effort. 

Range will also be hosting a food collection starting this week through next week for  employees and service company partners at our office. After meeting with the Food Bank, employees learned that protein is the food in top demand, so that’s the focus for donations for the food drive. Also, Non-perishable food, cash and even credit cards are also accepted as part of this effort.

Range's goal is to help be responsible for $100,000 in total resources for the Washington County Food Bank again this year – through the 2000 Turkeys pledge. Everyone can get behind helping those less fortunate during the holidays, especially Thanksgiving.
