Turkeys For Linda started in November 2010. My best friend, Linda died of lung cancer at a very young age. She had never smoked before and she had a love for smokers and smoked food. Every Thanksgiving we would give her and her family a smoked turkey.
Since 2010 Turkeys for Linda Inc., has been going strong. This year we chose Foster Closet because we wanted to choose a local non-profit that we could see and feel the result of our effort. We will be helping three families this year and will be able to help these families accomplish some of their own goals.
The week of Thanksgiving my husband and I smoke turkeys and all proceeds will go to Foster Closet. We are not asking for a donation, we are asking you to purchase a fully cooked Thanksgiving turkey for the Holiday from us. In 2010, we raised $650 and in 2011 we raised over $750. In 2012, we raised $2950 all supporting the American Lung Assocation. This year we hope to raise $2000 to help Foster Closet.
If you have a special request for a particular event or any particular smoked foods please let us know. We hope to surpass our goals and we can only do that with your help.
We look forward to making your 2013 holiday special while creating awareness about foster children and foster families in need. Additionally,you are also helping a local non-profit achieve their goalsl. For more information on Foster Closet, please check out www.fostercloset.org
