A few weeks ago we discussed adopting a charity. After discussing this with some of the members, we suggest that we proceed with our initial drive for Operation BBQ Relief. July 19th will be our deadline giving us around 6 weeks to donate our gifts.

After working with the guys at Operation BBQ Relief we designed a great and easy way to help these guys out. The link below will provide information on their organization and their methods of helping disaster victims and volunteers. Giving is as easy as clicking the blue "donate now" button. They accept Visa, Mastercard, etc... as well as checks.

Operation BBQ 
1502 A North 7 Hwy
Pleasant Hill, Missouri 64080



We have our own group web page.
All donations are given DIRECTLY to OBR and completely PRIVATE.
All donations are tax deductible.
Our page will have a running tally.
Please keep your receipt for amounts under $250
Only donations over $250 receive a receipt.

image

100% of all gifts go directly to OBR operations ..food, equipment, trailers, upkeep, etc..
All personel are volunteers. No paid staff.
They have won several awards for their work and organizational character.
You can sign up to be a volunteer.

We added friends to our group name because we can include folks that are not members or even eggers. The link can be shared with co-workers, friends, neighbors, Facebook contacts, etc... Their gifts amounts will be added to our total givings.

Having volunteered in three separate tornado disasters i can't begin to explain the devastation. I do know that a good meal, a cold drink and an arm around you really helps victims and volunteers alike.I would ask all of us while we are egging to sit down, have your favorite beverage and look around you. Your house. Your family. Your blessings. Put ourselves in the situation of loosing these possessions or worse yet, our loved ones before we give. Whether $5 or $500 our donations will go to help people serving very needy people. Our page has a goal posted...this was not my intention but was added in by the IT personel.

Please contact me if you have any questions. If in some way you disagree with any of this PLEASE pm me. We want to keep this positive. l will try to keep this thread in the recent discussions so everyone gets an opportunity to participate. Let's show them our generosity and support...as I'm sure we will.

  • Today the St. Louis Charcoal Company donated a pallet of Rockwood Charcoal to OBR. 

    The competition team "R Butts R Smokin" was in town for a cooking demonstration and stopped by the homestead today for a belated 4th of July party......got to show them what St. Louis style was all about!!  Brisket on the XL, ribs on the Large, and BBQ beans on the Medium.

    They were buying a pallets to take back to KC for competitions and to distribute amongst a few dealers.  I was able to squeeze an extra pallet into their enclosed trailer for OBR.  I hope to continue these donations as inventory and cash flow allows.

    Thanks to R Butts R Smokin for the free ride to KC!


    Super like.

    Was on vacation and just wanted to give this a bump.  Just processed a small donation and was very happy to participate as I think this is a great organization.  I realize there have been some slightly negative threads on the amount so far and some people feeling it was pushy, but all things aside this is a great non-profit to support and I give a lot of credit to OBR for what they are doing.  Additionally, while it looks like the original goal was set high, the folks organizing this should be very proud of the $3500 + donated so far.  It is a lot of work to organize and to get this amount through an internet forum is no small task.
