Hey everyone!!! Meet Beau & Analee!!! These are my children, aged 10 & 5. Last year on Thanksgiving Day, my 10 year old son made a decision. The next year for.Thanksgiving he wanted to get as many donations as he could so he could buy AND COOK turkeys and give them to families with with children who can not afford to cook a Thanksgiving meal. I had forgotten all about it, until he so graciously reminded me the other day. Our GOAL is to purchase 50 large turkeys , 50 pans of green bean Casserole, 50 pans of sweet potato casserole, and 50 packs of rolls. We could really use all of the help that we can get as Turkeys can be pretty expensive. I love how passionate a child's mind can be. How much faith and trust that they have, how they choose to only see the good in other people. For questions or If you would like any other information on what we are doing please feel free to email me. TO FIND OUT HOW YOU OR YOUR.CHILDREN CAN HELP BEAU, EMAIL ME .

Hello to everyone!
This is Beau !! I can not believe that we have made it almost half way to our goal!!
My mom and I have got many emails, and I.am.making sure I personally respond to each one.
I needed to reach out and ask all of you a few things.

First- Do any of you know of any families in the metro area who are in need for a Thanksgiving meal?
Second - I have a list of other items that we will most likely need that my mom will list at the bottom.
Third- If you have any questions please email my mom.

Here is the list:
Elbow noodles
Unsalted butter

Chicken base
All purpose flour
