Everyone deserves a special meal at least once a year, but unfortunately not everyone can afford it. Well, two very thoughtful and forward thinking business women from DuPont and Tacoma are back at work this holiday season. Their goal is to stock FISH Food Bank of Pierce County’s freezers with turkeys, and you can help!
It all started back in 2008, with a climate that is much like this year: elections, jobs, economy and war. Angie Sherman and Shari Crumbaker felt a calling to do something help those in need, right here in Pierce County. They decided to see how much money they could raise in one day, and went out and purchased turkeys at local grocery stores. In less than 5 hours, they raised $1000 and purchased 88 turkeys (you can read their original letter linked here). Sherman and Crumbaker, nicknamed the Turkey Angels, are ready to take on this challenge again, and are inviting you to join them.
All it takes is whatever your heart feels you can give. A buck or $5.00. Sherman or Crumbaker will pick up the donations. Just call 253-224-0333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations will be picked up on November 13, and shopping for turkeys will take place on November 15.
“We know you are in the same boat we are in. The economy says; hold on to what you can. But remember, doors open and blessings happen. When you think you cannot afford to give, is the time you cannot afford not to give,” said Sherman.
If you need a tax deductible donation receipt from FISH, please let Angie or Shari know and one will be provided.
