Thanksgiving's Heroes 2016

Thanksgiving's Heroes 2016

Being a realtor means that you can influence a lot of people. It is great that we can also do that in our community. The Adams Family Realty Team created a charity in the year 2015 called Thanksgiving's Heroes.

 

Who we are:

Thanksgiving’s Heroes is a non-profit organization that was started by Rob Adams in 2015. Rob Adams Founded the organization because he wanted to give back. When he was a boy, his family was very poor and one year someone helped his family and it forever changed his life. The charity focuses on giving families the opportunity to enjoy a big Thanksgiving dinner when otherwise they may not be able to. Its focus is also to provide an opportunity for families who are donating and delivering the meals to see and show their children what Thanksgiving is all about. Gratitude.


What we Achieved Last Year:

The original goal was to feed just 10 families that were in need. With the help of Fresh Market, and Jordan School District, and so many great people for helping raise money, sort and deliver food, we were able to feed over 800 families.

 


Our Goal in 2016:

Our goal in 2016 is to help families again this year.

 

What $60 Includes:

Donating $60 can help feed one family a huge Thanksgiving meal that includes;

*1 box stuffing       *1 pumpkin pie        *1 cranberry sauce *1 20 lb turkey

*1 can of olives      *1 ranch dressing   *1 gallon of milk     *1 whipped cream

*1 small veggie tray *1 10 lb bag of potatoes   *1 box of butter     *1 dozen rolls        

*2 gravy mixes         *3 cans of green beans   *1 sparkling cider  

*1 bag of French onion   *2 cans of cream of mushroom soup

 

How Deliveries Work:

Deliveries are a bit different this year. We are working with Macey’s this year and we are using a voucher system. The volunteers helping deliver go to Macey’s to pick up the voucher. They can choose whether they want to get the food for their family to deliver or they can bring the voucher to the family in need so they can go to Macey’s themselves and pick which things they want in their meal. Jordan School district has limited time this year so we are not going to be able to get as many names from them. We have been asking the volunteers if they know any families that need help this year and we will be also be delivering to all those families. We have also gotten a lot of calls

and messages of families in other states that need help, for those families we will be sending them a gift card in the mail so they can have a Thanksgiving meal as well.

 

Sponsors:

For our sponsors, we put the donators name and logo on all of our media and all of the families we help get a flyer with the companies name and logo so they can be recognized if they so choose.
