Dear Family and friends I come to ask you again to support me in a passion to feed the hungry.
Over the past 11 years the lawyers, staff and families at the former Farmer Jaffe Weissing et al. and now my friends and former law partners along with a very dedicated group of civic minded friends have personally delivered a full Thanksgiving dinner to families located in a Community comprised of some of the county’s most needy families. This project began 11 years ago by feeding 75 families and has grown so much that we delivered Thanksgiving dinner to almost 675 families last year. It is my intention to grow this event every year. This is the best day of my year. Last year we feed 2700 people. This year, more than ever with the current pandemic we need to obtain 700 turkeys and feeding more than 2800 people.
The delivery includes a 10-12 lb. Turkey along with all the fixings to make a complete family dinner for 4. Due to rising costs we are reaching out to our friends and asking for a small contribution. Would you please take part in this very worthwhile event by contributing $500 (any amount will be accepted). These monies will go to offset a budget that has grown to over $11,000. Price of the turkeys and food has risen.
Rest assured that every penny will be put towards the food. We personally pick up the turkeys and load them into trucks early in the am on the day of delivery.
THIS YEAR WE WONT BE ABLE TO HAVE OUR COMMUNITY PARTY AND SERVE HOT DOGS AND HAMBURGERS AND PLAY GAMES AND GIVE OUT PRESENTS. IN FACT, ONLY ESSETAIL COMMUNITY PEPOLE WILL DELIVER THE FOOD TO THE RESIDENCE. BUT THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE ARE NEED US MORE THAN EVER.
IN 2017, we have set up a 501 C 3 nonprofit “TURKEY GIVE AWAY, INC.”, so as we grow hopefully the support from our friends can grow.
