Diner Seeks Help Finding People In Need Of 100+ Free Holiday Meals

The owners of Kelly O's Diner came to us with a problem. They wanted to cook at least 100 free holiday meals, but they couldn't find anyone who needed them. Here's how we solved that problem.

The folks at Kelly O's Diner in Pittsburgh cooked up a wonderful idea. They planned to give out at least one hundred free Thanksgiving meals this holiday but they ran into a big problem... finding groups in need of their help. It may sound impossible, but that's what happened initially until we got involved.

Kelly O'Connor's daughter Seana Rader-Lois brought the conundrum to Sparkt and I started plugging away to find someone who needed their help. In just a few hours of putting the word out through my talk show on KDKA Radio, we connected Kelly O's with just the right group.

Here's how it all went down:

Even more amazing than the initial 100 hot holiday meals... they're ready to make more but need your help. You can help that number grow by going to the Kelly O's Diner website and donating a meal for $17.99 plus tax.
