The Los Angeles Lakers tipped-off the Season of Giving with the annual Turkey Giveaway, presented by East West Bank.
The morning began with a line wrapped around the Salvation Army LA Red Shield Community Center for the third year in a row. Families had lined up as early as 4:00am, ready to receive their Thanksgiving meal needs, pointing to the great need in the community being served. Over three hundred guests received a turkey, pumpkin pie, bread, and all the Thanksgiving meal fixings.
The Lakers and East West Bank continue this long-held tradition to allow more families the opportunity to share a warm and hearty meal on Thanksgiving and as a thank you to the community that has supported them through the years.
Lamar Odom, Robert Horry, and AC Green joined East West Bank volunteers to help distribute items and interact with the crowd. The Laker Girls also provided holiday cheer by taking pictures and signing autographs.
The Season of Giving continues through December with a Thanksgiving Feast and Holiday Party for Kids.
