Guam - The Limo family has spent months planning a Thanksgiving luncheon for the children at the Alee Shelter. Jeff Limo says his family came together to help the kids who are victims of abuse. Over 20 family members prepared lunch today to include a turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes.
They even donated gifts to place under the Christmas trees, which they even decorated themselves. He says this is the first time they've done something like this and they plan to do this every year. "The kids are most important to us. Our kids, growing up, our parents have taught us the importance of taking care of our kids as we grow up. It's unfortunate that some of the kids here don't have that. So we're here to celebrate and kick-off the holidays with them," he explained.
Alee Shelter executive director Sister Bridget Perez says she's grateful for the outpour of generosity, most especially during this season of giving. "We're grateful that some people are coming out to share whatever they have to the less fortunate children here," she said. "The children were very excited when they found out we were going to have a celebration with the family. It's beautiful that we still extend Thanksgiving even after. Thanksgiving is everyday, really."
