Default Thanksgiving Providers

OK,

I am going to make this as short and sweet as I can. My family volunteered to deliver donated food to families that signed up for the Thanksgiving Provider program at my son's high school.

we had 4 deliveries to make and on the last one I see that this grandmother raising her 8, yep 8 grandkids needed a little more help.

The family and I went back to the grocery store and picked up quite a bit more items that they needed.

When we delivered this load of goods the grandmother asked that we carry in the groceries and put them on her kitchen counter, and that is when I saw what else this lady needs.

The two bedroom doors that were open had blankets on the floor, yep these kiddos have NO Beds!

I am throwing this out there to see if anyone here would like to help get these kids some beds, I'm just thinking some twin mattresses on the floor would be a huge step up from nothing.

If you have a mattress that you are not using or if you would like to donate $$ for the purchase of one.

I have already looked on Amazon and they have twin mattress listed for $63.64

I need to get 6 mattresses and I am hoping to get these prior to Christmas for the kids.

Located in the Fort Worth Area (Haltom City)

Please PM me if this is something you would be interested in helping with.

Sheets would be great...

I was thinking that once I get all the mattresses that I could work on sheets or get a "bed in a Bag" for them..

I am going to be away from the computer for a while and I am going to just post my info..

I really do appreciate all the help taking care of this group. Just really hit home when I was there today...







you can order off amazon and ship to me, then I will coordinate delivery to the home.

Thank You

I have also received some pay pal donations and I'll try to get them all sorted out ASAP.

Thanks for those that have helped out and if anyone else wants to join in, feel free.



If those of you that have ordered something and having it shipped here can let me know with a PM, that would help me make sure that I am not going to double up son something when I can use the $$ for something else that is needed..

God Bless & Happy Thanksgiving

Got an updated tracking/delivery email from Amazon.. The last of the Mattresses will be delivered to my house on Tuesday 12/12

Hope to get these delivered to the family by Thursday of next week.

Thanks for all the help guys & gals.

In addition to the mattresses and bedding, enough was donated for us to provide them with roughly $300 additional groceries for the Holidays....

She said she would let me know so i could come take a pic or two.

And she gave me a big hug and couldnít say thank you enough. For that, I must thank all of you!!!
