The NBA has a lot of flaws, but the one thing that they do well is the NBA cares program.
Wanting to assist in any way possible, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo provided Thanksgiving meal food items to 200 families in need Tuesday evening.
“No one should go to bed hungry,” said the guard. “Hunger is a huge problem not only in Massachusetts but across the nation. Thanksgiving is a holiday where food is central as families come together to celebrate. I wanted to make sure some of Boston’s neediest families were able to have a meal this Thursday.”
As families walked into The Greater Boston Food Bank distribution warehouse they were greeted by Celtics volunteers who gave each family a grocery bag to use while picking up their items. The families went from table to table selecting cans of corn, peas and green beans in addition to cranberry sauce, turkey stuffing and potatoes.
