The Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce held its annual Thanksgiving drive to collect turkeys, other Thanksgiving-related items and other contributions for the Yavapai County Food Bank. A total of 1,645 turkeys were collected either before or during the main event Nov. 21, 2022, in the Fry’s Food & Drug parking lot. Numerous sponsors and volunteers made it possible, with Desert Financial Credit Union donating $12,500 in matching funds for donations received before the event. Meeting the goal meant Chamber CEO Marnie Uhl got to soar 101 feet above a Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority (CAFMA) bucket truck!
