National

(CNN) — Two Charlotte sisters are on a mission to feed more than 100 families this Thanksgiving.

The sisters’ even have local roots, their mom Lisa McCann Fischer is a Rockford native.

It’s quite an impressive feat when you consider Alex and Caroline Fischer are only six and nine-years-old.

The girls sold lemonade and baked goods to raise money for turkey and all the trimmings.

They also set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for the Thanksgiving feasts.

This year they made enough to buy 108 turkeys and the accompanying ingredients.

Neighbors helped them pack boxes of food, rent a truck and deliver it all by November 23rd.

They plan to continue the family tradition next year because they have a lot to be thankful for.
