Thanks to the support of the community, AZADI Fine Rugs has announced that they are donating 181 turkeys this November.
At the beginning of October, AZADI kicked off its annual “Living is Giving” campaign and committed to donating a turkey for every visit to AZADI Fine Rugs in each of their locations, according to a press release.
As a result, AZADI is donating 181 turkeys in all: 83 in Scottsdale to St. Mary’s Food Bank; 26 in Jackson Hole to Teton Youth & Family Services; 37 in Telluride to Telluride Angel Baskets; and 35 in Sedona to the Sedona Community Food Bank.
AZADI selected St. Mary’s Food Bank to be the recipient of the turkeys because of the work they do in their effort to fight hunger in the Phoenix community, according to a press release.
St. Mary’s is the world’s first food bank, founded in 1967. Today, St. Mary’s is one of the largest food banks in the United States and has had a tremendous impact on the state of Arizona.
Currently, 28.2% of children in Arizona faces hunger and 1 in 3 children in Arizona live in poverty. St. Mary’s Food Bank assists the communities of Arizona in many ways, including the distribution of Emergency Food Boxes, The Community Kitchen, Child Nutrition Programs, and the Mobile Pantry.
“We are honored to offer our support to St. Mary’s Food Bank and hope that our contribution will impact many families in need this holiday season” said AZADI Fine Rugs owner, David Neishabori, in a prepared statement.
AZADI Fine Rugs is committed both locally and globally to supporting communities that they see as their extended family, the press release stated.
They believe that part of building a business is building a legacy of giving.
Locally, they have worked with numerous non-profits helping them to raise much-needed funds.
AZADI is weaving a brighter future for women around the world. In an effort to support the livelihood of women around the globe, AZADI is committed to resourcing high-quality products that are produced exclusively by female weavers and artisans.
Procuring these items --- including authentic Navajo rugs, handwoven baskets from the Wounaan tribe of the rainforest, and fine rugs from weaving centers in war-torn areas of Afghanistan --- gives women the opportunity to work outside the home and become financially independent.
Through their involvement with local charities such as Save the Family, Florence Crittenton, Susan B. Komen for the Cure (Breast Cancer), and Bras for a Cause, AZADI assists women in need and provides hope for a brighter future.
AZADI is certified and recognized globally as a child-labor-free rug company.
Their purpose is creating worldwide beauty with an unforgettable experience.
Established in 1790, AZADI Fine Rugs is known as the oldest purveyor of fine rugs in the world. They still operate from this over 200-year tradition, passed along through each generation of this family-owned business, of passion, respect, and gratitude for all whom they serve.
AZADI Fine Rugs' Scottsdale location is at 7001 N. Scottsdale Road, suite 124.
