North Carolina Costco raises its biggest deal ever

It wasn’t just the size of the purchase that made a recent purchase at a particular store in North Carolina Costco – that was the motive behind the $103,079.70 bill.

The goal of the purchase is to provide food for low-income children in Durham during their absence from school, when parents can no longer rely on school lunches to feed them.

Teacher Turquoise Parker started Bull City Foodraiser in 2015 when she learned that children had problems eating well, according to NBC’s “Today“the show.

“I had a family come to me and say, ‘We don’t know how we’re going to eat. Can you please help us? ‘” Parker said.

She offered to help, then realized that problem larger than a family.

“But we realized that if one family is asking, there are probably a lot of other people who could benefit from the same thing,” says Parker.

After a pile of texts, she managed to have enough for all the kids in her class.

“A child, I will never forget, was so excited to receive a bag of GoGo Squeez apple sauce,” she said. “He said, “Only the rich get these! Do you know how expensive they are? ‘ Since then, I’ve always adopted the last name as GoGo Squeez. It is non-negotiable.”

Parker explained: “I am delighted and grateful to know that they will be fine and comfortable during the break. “But I still want to do more.”

Attorney T. Greg Doucette, who was on the project’s ground floor in 2015, has been in charge of the fundraising ever since – and he’s getting results.

By this year, when he was setting a record at Costco, what started as a helping hand to a children’s class helped 5,103 poor children in Durham.

“It was amazing for me to ride with her on a shotgun and see what it turned out to be,” Doucette said.

The people who received help appreciated what was done for them.

“One year she helped us celebrate Christmas – she got everyone in the house for Christmas. And this year, she’s been helping out with Thanksgiving,’ a woman named Cynthia told “Today.”

Parker said that care It is something that anyone can do, rich or poor.

“We don’t make a lot of money as teachers in North Carolina, but I will do whatever I can to make sure my kids eat,” she said. “We have to take care of each other. We are all called to serve.”
