Fundraiser Details

On October 11th-13th, 2013, thousands of truckers and American Patriots (AND OUR CANADIAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS) that are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America will be declaring a GENERAL STRIKE! Truck drivers will not haul freight; they will take their fight to the roads of Washington DC.  People who vow to support the Washington DC Trucker Convoy are pledging not to spend money on non-emergency, non essential goods or services on October 11th, 12th or 13th.  

However, the TRUCKERS need to eat ~ if they are keeping their wallets closed for three days in solidarity, how can they get a hot meal?  I know truckers are creative in their cabins, hell, my father, a trucker, is working on a truckers cookbook, but nothing compares to a mommas homecookin', am I right?  

This is where we come in.  We will do our part by feeding the Patriots that are riding for US.  How many we can feed depends on how much we can get in donations to purchase the food (the week before, of course) and prepare it in our homes and bring it out to the truckers to a designated place, to be determined as the event gets closer.  Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.  Whatever food and/or funds left over will be donated to the hungry/needy.

Wow!  Donations came pouring in last night, thank you Patriots! 

A couple things I want to clear up ~ this effort is NOT a part of the 'Ride for Contritution' or their original plans, this is something we have decided to do as a community to support the truckers. However, we are not rich and where we alone could MAYBE feed a couple hundred truckers one day (who are riding for THREE straight days and are trying to keep their wallets closed during that time), with help we could feed so many more and for all three days.  We set the goal LOW, but the more donations we can get, the more we can feed, so please don't stop donating because we hit our goal!

That said, we are collaborating CLOSELY with the truckers to determine the best location for this staging.  If anyone knows of any halls, VFWs, American Legion, parking lots, etc. that is off Interstate 95, preferrably on the Baltimore side of the beltway, that may let us stage, PLEASE let us know!  It would be preferrable to have a hall with a kitchen to keep food hot and col, and seating for all riders to take rest, chat with one another, keep the buzz going over this monumental step that is being taken.

We also could still use more volunteers to prepare food (large amounts) from home and bring it to the set location once it is confirmed, and help out at the station.  Please contact us if you are interested in helping that way.
