Washington Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins wanted to make sure those who grew up in the same Central, SC., community he did were treated to a proper Thanksgiving dinner last week.
Hosting the first-ever J3 Foundation turkey drive, the fourth-year Clemson product on Tuesday tweeted out some video of the event:
While Jenkins couldn’t be present as he was practicing with his teammates at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va., his philanthropic efforts were definitely felt.
His father, Larry, struggled to contain his emotions after he was asked what it meant for his son to giving away whole turkeys, green beans, mashed potatoes and stuffing to more than 100 families.
Below are more photos of the event via the Jarvis “J3” Jenkins Facebook Fan Page:
