McCurley Integrity Dealership donates $15,000 toward Thanksgiving meals

McCurley Integrity Dealership staff delivered hundreds of Thanksgiving meals to families in need Friday.

Over half of the McCurley staff deducted money from their paychecks to help feed 670 families throughout the Tri-Cities, Walla Walla and Prosser areas.

Employees were able to raise over $15,000 to purchase turkey, ham, milk and veggies for families from Fiesta Foods.

They spent Friday delivering meals to organizations that support foster kids and low income families. Organizations include The Royal Family Kids Camp, Golden Age Share Program and the Blue Mountain Action Council non-profit.

Employees said they look forward to making a difference in the community every year.

“The feeling of elation that you get when you know that you have affected and helped so many people is great, especially since almost everyone we have been able to help wouldn’t’t normally have a Thanksgiving dinner otherwise.” McCurley employee Sue Flaherty said. “There’s not a time that we don’t leave a day of donations in tears.”

A family owned distributing company, Terry’s Dairy donated one of its refrigerated trucks to help employees store and keep the food fresh.

Employees will be delivering meals throughout the communities until next Tuesday.
