NOTE: We are no longer accepting new orders!
It’s almost time for one of Iredell County’s favorite Thanksgiving traditions, all to benefit emergency personnel on a day they’re spending apart from family.
The Iredell County Fraternal Order of Police and Cooking for Christ will team-up once again to cook and sell their famous Boston Butts. “We will begin cooking on Tuesday, Nov. 24,” said Iredell FOP President Rodney James. “We plan on cooking approximately 250 Butts this year alone.”
Donations of $35 each or $100 for three Butts is suggested. “They’re delicious,” James said. “We have multiple people on the list already for this year.”
Donations raised will feed every law enforcement officer, firefighter, EMT/paramedic and ECOM dispatcher who must work on Thanksgiving. The FOP provides a full meal, including turkey, potatoes, corn, mac-n-cheese, green beans, yeast rolls and – of course – pumpkin pie.
“In addition to feeding our local heroes, we will feed families that are less fortunate,” James said, adding that up to 40 families will be served this year.
“We also provide several meals to My Sister’s House, the county’s shelter for abused women and children,” he said. If donations allow, the FOP will also donate meals to Fifth Street Ministries’ homeless shelter.
“Every year, this is one of our most successful fundraisers, and I have no doubt this year will be the same,” James said. “In years past, we’ve had many gracious people donate $100, keeping just one Boston Butt for themselves. They choose to donate the others to our local shelters or to people who are less fortunate.”
Butts can be picked up starting this Tuesday, Nov. 24th, at 9am.
