thanks for the kind words!
now I am becoming involved with feeding flood workers. We had some bad flooding here a few weeks ago and there are 2000 seniors and disabled that need help cleaning up
there are teams here from all over the country. I was contacted by the state community services director to see if we could provide some BBQ for them, and we are working out the details now.
thanks guys. I have been trying to raise funds for a few cooks I am working on
I have been in touch with the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund about doing something for them in the spring
And also, Dutton Farms in Rochester Hills, Michigan. They are a farm that has programs for special needs kids and adults. I would love to do a cook for them.
But of course, funds are always an issue.
So I have started a Go Fund Me drive, you can find it here.
Handyman Stan gave us a very generous donation. If any of you would like to donate, even a small amount, I have some details about it on this thread, please take the time to take a look at it
Thanks Stan. Actually I just chose a figure, its going to be an ongoing campaign. I spoke with Lynn from The Wounded and Fallen Soldiers Fund just yesterday, we are trying to come up with a way to either feed vets or raise funds for them.
Today, we are having a small drop off meal for flood relief workers in our area. They are in the Detroit area from Massachusetts. 2 of my guys are doing that, its being paid for by a woman from the State of Mich who arranges this type of service
And on Thurs, I am doing a Habitat for Humanity fundraiser at work.
Neither of these are using the funds I have raised, those funds are only for vet and homeless cooks and will be used only when there is no other funding available.
So I have many irons in the fire
Sorry I'm late on this, but it speaks volume of you and Paul when you do these kinds of things for our vets. Truly is a great thing, and it makes me proud to be a soldier and serve people like you all! That is why I had Paul build my smoker when I had the funds. Class act all around, as with everyone I met in the BBQ world so far. What a great community!
