Blue Spruce Grill /Western Maine

Raised by 23 people in 15 months

Asking for help from friends as to how to write this and getting advice I cannot follow. 
I won't lie to you.
I also will not embellish or ask for more than the bare minimum it would take to get moved.
  
I haven't had family since the age of 15 and I'd like to live closer to my Father. 
The truth of why this fundraiser is happening is my Dad is getting older (like me) and I'd like to be able to earn my living down the street from him instead of at the other side of the state.

I've tried for 3 years to make this change and I am 1/2 way there! I own the food truck! I have the lot secured to park it on a major thoroughfare!

YOU can make a big difference with a ripple effect that stretches to an entire community with your donation. 

I'll be offering a pay it forward so that no one ever leaves my truck hungry and have reached out to the local homeless shelter about working with them & they were receptive!
I can help feed those they are housing.


I can do this! I have no doubt!

For the last 12 years
I've had a sunglass kiosk at the beach here in Maine giving me extensive customer service & experience running my own shop. 

              My shop has gone through many changes. 



The community is supportive everywhere I have turned except for donations to get us moving forward. I live in the Western foothills of Maine where the median income is about $17k.                               

Work here is scarce so I'm creating my own job.
Food trucks are a novelty in this area.

.
This will be a great working environment when we get the air conditioner (already donated!) installed.
I've purchased the food concession wagon and some of the freezers and refrigerators.    Please click on my 'wishlist' to see the rest of the items I am looking to purchase.   

I am in need of a good used towing vehicle.
I put the cart before the horse, so to speak and over estimated my old van, it's just been sold for scrap.

We will have to replace the grill & add an ANSI system (approx $2k if I am very careful) but the good news is that the water system is ready to rock & roll!

PLEASE donate today?

I'd keep plodding along buying pieces of my dream until I could jigsaw it into reality but there is a time constraint with regard to a loved ones' medical issues, I need to get closer to this 87 year old veteran. He's alone. Just like I was.. no family.

I need your help and I need it now.
Please share this with others?

Another season is finishing up and it's time for me to move. Again.

If you are planning a Christmas miracle for me, please can you do it for Hanukkah?

I need to know I have enough put aside before signing my lease for the Pier next year before the New Year. Thank you for your donations and your sharing my campaign.

I've been going to a few doctors this last month and they want me to close my sunglasses store. No problem with the food cart at all, it's just not possible for me to run the shop I have now so I'm going in the right direction with your help . Thank you for your shares, encouragement and contributions.
