Made possible thanks to:
Decker Truck Line & K-PAX TV
The Guerrilla Turkey Drive started 25 years ago with the idea of asking for turkeys to make sure everyone in Western Montana got one for Thanksgiving. The reason it’s named the “Guerrilla Turkey Drive” is we are fighting hunger one turkey at a time. We have teamed again this year with Decker Truck Lines who will be donating a refrigerated truck and fuel, and KPAX-TV to make it bigger and better.
We are asking for Turkey and money donations at 1600 North Avenue from 6:00 am – 5:00 pm from 11/18/19 – 11/22/19. All the donations will stay in Western Montana. The donations will go to The Darby Bread Box (Darby), The Haven House (Hamilton), Pantry Partners (In Stevensville), Mineral County Food Bank (Superior/St. Regis) Head Start in Missoula and the Missoula Food Bank.
Helping kick things off…
Domino’s will be donating $2 from every delivery on Friday, November 15th 2019.

Christian Grant will be in the freezer truck at 6:00 am on Mon, Nov. 18th. 2019. He’ll be out there until the first bird comes in.
Donations in the Bitterroot…
There will be a “Bitterroot Battle of the Birds” on Thursday, November 21st. 2019. People can drop off any donations at these locations during these times: Anna: Hamilton’s Market Place 7:00 am – 9:00 am and Stevensville: Super One Foods 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Big T: Florence: Florence Coffee Co. 6:00 am – 8:00 am and Lolo: Harvest Foods 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm.
Whoever collects the most turkeys and money in the Bitterroot will get to throw a pie in the face of the loser, between Anna and Big T!
The battle tally and pie in the face will happen at Cowboy Troy’s on highway 93 in Victor!
Donation brought to the station will get a certificate for a free Staggering Ox “Thanksgiving” sandwich. Every donation Midas is giving a $10 coupon off next service (while they last), plus they are matching $1 for the first 500 donated to our drive for the local food banks. Every donation will be entered into the drawing for a pair of tickets to see Korn & Breaking Benjamin on Sunday, February 28th at the Adam’s Center.
