Turkey day

 You guys know that Turkey day is my favorite holiday each year. Give me all the foods - turkey, mashed, carrots, pies, stuffing, cranberry sauce and whatever else I can fit on my plate.

This is what I learned this weekend:

"HONDURAS, Hurricane Relief Donations

 As many of you may know, The country of Honduras has been devastated with floods, mudslides, and destruction caused by Hurricane ETA. There’s been multiple casualties and tens of thousands of its residents have seen their homes destroyed and damaged and subsequently been displaced with no where to go and no food to to eat. Entire cities, Towns, and villages are under water.  A lot of the regions infrastructure has been decimated making it difficult for people to receive local aid. Means of communication have been severely impacted making it difficult for loved ones to check on each other.

In the next couple of weeks I will be conducting a canned food, shoes and  clothing drive in the Boston area to ship and try to provide some relief for these hurricane victims. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. I will be accepting Used and New Shoes/Clothes for men, women, children, and infants. Sheets/blankets. Canned foods. Baby formula, pampers. Cooking pots and pans.

 You can reach him at (857)212-2280 via text for donation pick up or delivery."
