Carolina “Carrie” Liendo Ruiz and her sister Felomena “Felia” Nava used to help people by providing whatever they had in their pantry until 1994 when they started cooking Thanksgiving dinners to the needy or to those who did not want to spend Thanksgiving alone.
 
Carrie’s son, David Ruiz, said, “My mom organized it and I coordinated it. [Nearly] the whole family is involved – brothers, sisters, and cousins. People who knew my family started to get involved such as close friends.”
 
Carrie died in 2007 and Felia died in 2012 but the spirit of giving continued on. David’s niece Isabel Patton has been operating “Let’s Stand Together” since 2007.
