Thanksgiving Outreach Cooks Up 4,000 Meals
Feasts Created For Those Less Fortunate
Nov. 19, 2011HONOLULU --
What started over a dozen years ago with a few turkeys to help several families on Oahu, has turned into an island-wide project that now reaches thousands.
Saturday morning, a small army of volunteers spent their morning at Ko'Olina loading up tons of turkey, gallons of gravy and all the trimmings for a Thanksgiving feast.
Hundreds had prepared and cooked the food for this project, which has grown since it started 13 years ago.
"We started out with four turkeys for a few families. We wanted to reach more people and the only way to build relationships with the west side was to do something big," said Pele Toomata, with the Aloha Team.
