For the third year in a row, two sisters in North Carolina are raising money to provide meals for families that can’t afford a Thanksgiving dinner.

Alex, 9, and Caroline, 6, raised enough money to provide Charlotte Rescue Mission (CRM) with 130 Thanksgiving Food Boxes and 50 turkeys.
This year they will be able to provide CRM with meals for 200 local families.
“We want to give a huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone who has helped Alex and Caroline meet and absolutely crush their goal of feeding 50 families in need this Thanksgiving,” mom Lisa Fischer wrote on GoFundMe. “Their hard work from their lemonade stands and bake sales has earned them $1,142 which puts them just shy of $5,000 with your generous donations!”

The Thanksgiving Food Boxes cost approximately $20 each. They contain green beans, corn, sweet yams, cranberry sauce, stuffing, rice, pie crust and filling, a baking pan, and a frozen turkey.
The Fischer family buys all the food from their local grocery store and packs the boxes, too.
“We are hoping to recruit some help from the neighbors to pack the boxes this year, rent out a truck and deliver the food by Nov. 23,” Lisa explained.
