Turkish Woman Serving Hope in Palm Beach County for Thanksgiving

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Serving others is truly a way of life for Zuhre Beytas. She moved to Palm Beach County from Turkey a decade ago in search of the American dream.

“My family was really poor,” she said.

Beytas has worked in local restaurants since moving to the area, but it was on her birthday in 2018 that her focus became apparent. She decided to celebrate by raising funds for local people struggling with homelessness.

Zuhre Beytas believes that her purpose in life is to give to others.

“If you believe in yourself, you can do a lot of things,” she said. “I want to be there for them.”

Her dedication to giving has grown ever since. This year, Beytas raised money for a Thanksgiving meal to feed over 100 people in need in West Palm Beach.

“My heart beats with happiness,” she said. “I’m so excited and I’m so proud.”

Beytas’ mother comes from Turkey during the holidays. She will help her daughter serve meals to the homeless community on Thanksgiving.

“For my mother, my country, for everyone, I want to show others that we can do good things if we really want to,” Beytas said.

A number of corporate and individual sponsors helped Beytas plan the Thanksgiving meal, including the Pergament Family, Misty’s Florist, Stephanie Hill, Karen Gugino, Oguz Kiziltas, and Bedirye Gunduz.
