MAHALO for making our THANKSGIVING COMMUNITY MEAL a Huge Success!
On Friday, November 17th Lex Brodie’s Tire along with Reel Church Ministries and Malia Puka Kalani Church were honored to sponsor a Free Thanksgiving Meal for our Hilo Community. Drivethru pick-up began at 4:00 pm in front of Saint Joseph High School located at 1000 Ululani Street. The delicious hot meal consisted of Kalua turkey with gravy, rice, buttered corn, purple sweet potato and pumpkin pie. We were able to provide 750 nourishing meals to our community.
Mahalo to the generosity of Safeway-Hilo who kindly gave us a discount on twenty-five Tom Turkeys by selling them to us at their sale price to help defray expenses. Mahalo to Hawaii Island Home for Recovery for the use of their certified kitchen to prepare these delicious meals.
Big Mahalo to Malia O Kalani Church for the use of their certified kitchen to prep turkeys for the IMU. And a Big Mahalo also to the Kalapana Painted Church for letting us utilize their certified IMU during the Veteran's Day weekend to cook our turkeys. All of this was made possible by the grace of our Heavenly Father.
Thank you to all the volunteers who came together to prepare the meal, serve it and distribute them to our Hilo Community. May you all have a Blessed Thanksgiving Celebration. ALOHA…. Anita =)
