O-Fish-All Business Delivers Thanksgiving Meals To Families in Need

Posted: Updated:
"We were sitting around in the garage one day and we were preparing for a shark tournament and we needed a good catchy team name. We were came up with a play on words called O FISH ALL BUSINESS," said Cooley.
O FISH ALL BUSINESS in now in their second year prepping Thanksgiving meals for families and the organization came up with the idea over a fishing trip.
"We got together and we were hanging out fishing and we were like c'mon lets do something for Thanksgiving for families in Victoria. Toby made some calls and we ended up helping 3 or 4 families," said Burnett. 
While one day they would love to continue to grow this event but the most important thing is having a personal connection with the families. "We do like to get personal with things. We don't want to be like "here is your stuff see you". We want to get to know you. We want to always be there for you," said Burnett and Cooley. 
I got a chance to follow the group drop off a meal to a Victoria family and they were very grateful to receive these blessings. "They randomly picked seven families. We were one of those seven. We appreciated and thanked God for it," said Lopez.
