Taking Care of Veterans, Thanksgiving Meals

Taking Care of Veterans, Thanksgiving Meals

Hey, everyone. We’ve done our yearly Turkey drive. We do this to benefit a local organization called Newby Ginnings. They serve veterans and their families. This year, we're doing 75 turkeys. It is our 5th year doing it.

 

I think the truth is, all of us at some point in life, need a little bit of generosity, help or encouragement. And other times, we can be ones that can be a little generous or helpful towards others.

We're honestly very honored to be able to do this every year. I like to thank all of the staff who have donated their time into putting all these together. It's cool to see how fast 75 meals can get assemble.

 

WHAT IS NEWBY GINNINGS

Newby-Ginnings is a veteran support program that we started in memory of my son, Nick Newby. That's why Newby-Ginnings is spelled weirdly. It's a play in his name. We accept donations from the community; like anything a veteran and their family could use. All we require is a DD-214 military ID or a VA card. Fill out a short enrollment form and then they can come in and shop like they would at a store, but there's no charge for anything.

 

Theresa: Three weeks ago, we celebrated our ninth anniversary. Now, we have over 5000 families enrolled in our program. People come into Newby-Ginnings all the time and want to thank us. We're the place where people can bring things so it goes to the people that need it. That's what CLKsupplies is doing. They provide things that people need, and we're just getting it to them. So, we really appreciate you every year. I mean, I don't know how many years this is now.

PJ: We feel honored to do it and I think it's like for us and the team for tonight. It's one of those that it's such a worthy cause that we get to just go to participate in, like all of us look forward to it every year and so we appreciate you.

Theresa:  Just today, we had a family of seven come in and for the last nine months they've been living in a camper. They finally got into a house and they came into Newby-Ginnings. They were getting everything they needed for inside their new house and I told him about this. I'm like, “Do you guys need some help with a thanksgiving meal?” And they're like, “Yeah, we have nothing.” Told them to come back tomorrow. Probably give him two because they have seven mouths to feed and this will be their Thanksgiving dinner in their new house. So, this is cool.

PJ: Thank you all for volunteering. You guys do and take care of the veterans.

PJ: All right. Well, that's a wrap for this year's Turkey drive over here at CLK. Thank all of you in the #LockBoss community, and to all of our customers as well because without your support and the business you give us, none of this would be possible at all. So, on behalf of my entire staff, I would just like to say thank you, and I hope you and your loved ones have a happy Thanksgiving!
