Over the last few weeks we have been very involved in helping people and providing support to those whose lives have been devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
As if it wasn’t bad enough that in the North East, as we approach the winter season, thousands are already homeless, hungry and in need of help, when Sandy came along it just added to the tragedy and the need.
There has been a wonderful outpouring of support, as there always is, in the first days after the disaster. People have generously given and much needed help has been provided.
This in itself though is, in a peculiar way, part of the new problem that we face. There is only so much money to go around at this time of the year when so many think of those in need and give generously to help families who are hungry at Thanksgiving. Much of that money that we need to help and to feed the hungry has already been given and now we are asking you again to reach deep into your pockets and help us achieve our goals and help those in need this holiday season.
Pastor Steve Terry of the Oroville Rescue Mission said this week that this has been the worst year for donations and the greatest year for need that he has ever known.
Here at Turkey Club America we are still on track to provide Ten Thousand Turkeys to feed the Hungry and Homeless this Thanksgiving, but to do so we need your help.
