Local Child Turns His Dream into Reality for Hungry People a Thanksgiving Meal

 

A child’s idea, passion and perseverance will result in 50 families enjoying a traditional Thanksgiving meal this year. Beau Wilkins, a 10 year old, 5th grader at Mason Creek Elementary became concerned about homeless people and those who are not able to have a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

Beau talked to his mother, Allison Wilkins, and decided to find a way to make a difference for needy families and individuals this holiday season. A media campaign was launched and an on-line funding account, was established. Beau was hosted by the Atlanta Falcons and featured in the Douglas County Sentinel recently. He has also been featured on 11 Alive News with his heartfelt story and food drive. He is set to talk to most major Atlanta news outlets to share his passion for feeding hungry people.

J.T. Fuller of Big J’s Catering in Villa Rica, a friend of Beau’s Assistant Principal at Mason Creek Elementary School, Ms. Jennifer Jimmie, is donating his time and talent to work with Beau and his family to cook the donated turkeys and vegetable casseroles to help fulfill Beau’s commitment. Ms. Jimmie is also working with members of her church to deliver the food to needy families in Douglas County.

“It is wonderful to see Beau’s passion and dedication to fulfilling his dream of feeding the less fortunate,” said Ms. Kathleen French, Beau’s school principal. “It is rare to see a child of his age have such compassion to the needs of the greater community. We are certainly proud of him, his dedication and his accomplishments.”
