D-Fenders Help Distribute Turkeys In Community
Los Angeles, CA- On Saturday, November 22, the Los Angeles D-Fenders took part in a community initiative to provide nearly 2,000 families from inner-city Los Angeles with Thanksgiving dinner. D-Fenders players, Ryan Forehan-Kelly, Joe Crawford and Longar Longar, along with Head Coach Chucky Brown gathered to help distribute the turkeys just in time for the holiday season.
Approximately, 1,800 frozen turkeys were distributed in the courtyard of the Los Angeles Dream Center. Members of these families began waiting in line at 2pm the day prior to the event, to ensure that they would receive a turkey before they ran out. In feeding numerous needy families in the inner cities of Los Angeles, the second annual Turkey Giveaway was said to be a huge success.
Poverty in Los Angeles is overwhelming, and many hard workers have been laid off of their jobs. The D-Fenders, in partnership with the Dream Center understands that there are many people who simply cannot afford to celebrate Thanksgiving and are doing their part to help. With the help of the Dream Center and volunteers like the D-Fenders, these families were able to enjoy a holiday feast that they deserve.
