Turkey Drive – HCDMB Boerne
During the holidays Sales Associates, employees and D’Ann Harper herself strive toward giving back to the community even more. The Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries was in desperate need of Turkeys to fill their Thanksgiving Boxes for local families. They needed 500 Turkeys to fill the needs of these families. Due to a bird flu epidemic this year the local Food Bank is not able to help them out as they have in previous years.
Debbie McNeal, a Sales Associate with our Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Boerne Office took the initiative to lead the way on this effort. Throughout the year the Boerne Office works with Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries to help them provide for the needs of the local community. It is so special to those we serve to have a sit-down Thanksgiving meal in their own homes, with family and friends, that they have prepared and cooked themselves. What a difference it makes to them not to have to stand in line for their Thanksgiving meal.
The funds collected were used to purchase as many turkeys as possible through the local HEB.
We spoke with Debbie and she shared some wonderful information with us,
“The Turkey Drive was a huge success. Today we delivered 224 Turkeys to Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries along with a check in the amount of $430.09. I had pre-ordered 200 turkeys, since that was my personal goal from the beginning. The funds collected actually far exceeded the 200 turkey order. So, HEB was able to fill the order with an additional 24 turkeys that they had available when we picked up the order. So, I contacted HCDBM & gave them the option of me ordering an additional 51 turkeys or giving them that money for grocery items if that better suited their needs. They opted to take the check & use it to purchase grocery items they desperately needed to fill the Thanksgiving Dinner Boxes. Thank you so much for your support throughout this process. Because of you support & the support of CBDHR & so many others, we were able to provide Thanksgiving Dinner at home for 224 families this year!“
When we reached out to the Boerne community our friends supported this wonderful cause in helping feed families this Thanksgiving. There were also many personal donations made by friends, family & Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTOR agents from different offices.
A special thank you to all the folks that helped make this happen!
