Help BBQ Relief!

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

By Stan Hays

2016! WOW, what a year! Operation BBQ Relief saw metamorphic growth and change. We doubled our volunteer base to over 4,500 Volunteers. We have added state leads in 34 states where the need for preparation and early information is necessary. We have participated in training with governmental agencies and on our own. Our volunteers are prepared and ready to move into 2017.

We have more than doubled our corporate relationships in 2016. Our Corporate Sponsors stepped up huge in 2016. We could not have served a fraction of the 536,874 hot BBQ meals without their unbelievably generous support.

We don’t know what 2017 will bring by way of disasters. We have no idea where Operation BBQ Relief will be next. Our BBQ Family is ready to provide Hot BBQ Meals, Compassion, Hope, and Friendship to those affected by disaster. We can’t do it without you. Please register as a volunteer and consider making a tax deductible contribution.
