THE ORTIZ & KEARNEY FAMILY
TEACHING THE HERO'S HEART TO OTHERS
Last year two families who never would have had the opportunity to cross paths met on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The Kearney Family volunteered to deliver an entire week's worth of fresh healthy food to the Ortiz Family, whose children's school nominated as a food insecure family. As a single parent and immigrant who does not speak English, Mrs. Ortiz struggles to provide enough food even to have one meal a day available for her children.
With the help of all our donors, partner businesses, our early morning Food Sorting Volunteers, and Delivery Hero Families like the Kearneys the Ortiz Family enjoyed this cornucopia of heathy food the week of Thanksgiving:
- Huge 15-20 lb Turkey
- Potatoes, stuffing, & gravy
- Cranberries, apples, oranges
- Green beans, mushroom soup, & french onions
- Rolls, olives, veggie tray
- Butter, milk, & cooking pan
- Pumpkin pie & whipped cream
As a young boy growing up in South Texas, Thanksgiving’s Heroes, LLC founder, Rob Adams was the oldest child in a family of six.
Life in poverty was a challenge for Adams and his family. He had two outfits, one for church and one for school. The family lived together in their pickup truck. Once every few weeks, they would go stay at a motel for a day, taking advantage of the opportunity to get what little clothing they had cleaned.
Every year, millions of school children in American rely on public schools to be able to eat lunch. For many of these children, this lunch is their only guaranteed meal of the day. Adams himself was one of these children.
The roots of Thanksgiving’s Heroes are firmly grown from his experiences as a child.

What Last Year's Volunteers Had To Say
"This was the ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT of our family holidy"
"I wanted to drive back and pick up more boxes to deliver, what a powerful experience"
"I cried tears of joy to see how happy my family was to receive the food I delivered"
"Bobby's wife started crying! They are so thankful, she said they really needed this bc they didn't know what they were going to do!"
"We delivered Thanksgiving meals to two families today after hockey. The second family stole my heart. The mom was so grateful as she said her and her kids are trying to get back on their feet. She cried, hugged me which made me cry. I told her God loves you and will never leave you and the kids. She kept hugging me and than went to hug the kids."
" I absolutely love this program. The family we delivered to was so grateful. The little kids were so excited, they looked into the box and yelled, "potatoes!" The simple gift of food brought them so much joy. I was glad my son was with me to witness that. "
