SACRAMENTO, CA (PRWEB) March 12, 2016
The Springer Turkey Challenge takes place every year in November, although donations can be made year round. In 2015 a total $1,620 from contributions was raised, up slightly from 2014. Keith Springer matches each donation dollar for dollar, decided to “give back” more to the community this year by contributing $5,000. This gave a total of $6,620 to help feed those most in need. Proceeds went to the Sacramento Food Bank, Stanford Settlement, and Make A Wish.
Springer Turkey Challenge raises money to feed hungry families. The number of people in need is astounding, and Keith Springer believes that no child should ever go hungry, especially during the holidays. Most of the contributions come in during the holiday season, starting as low as $15 to buy a turkey, which is then matched, doubling the pot. As the holidays arrive, the money is presented to feed the families most in need in the local community. There are contributions that come in after the holidays, as well as throughout the year, which still get matched, and all the funds are gifted to local charities.
Keith Springer originally started doing the Springer Turkey Challenge in 1999 as a way of giving back to the Sacramento community with something that really makes a difference. In the beginning, he would go to the supermarket and negotiate the price of turkeys, pay for them, then help the food bank load them into their pick-ups for distribution. As the Springer Turkey Challenge grew, Keith began donating the money rather than turkeys. This way they could also provide other necessary items to round out the meal.
Last year, Springer Financial Advisors helped over 10,000 people who would have otherwise gone without a meal during the holidays. Keith is very thankful for those who have contributed, and is excited to be looking forward to an even bigger 2016. Anyone interested in contributing can donate to Springer Financial Advisors, 4480 Duckhorn Dr., Sacramento, CA 95834.
