On Tuesday, November 22, 2011, the Nan Knox Boys & Girls Club was visited by some very special guests. Basketball stars Jermain Taylor and Keyon Dooling were joined by Zeta Chi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. to host the “The National Basketball Players Association Great Turkey Give Away 2011 at the club. More than 500 turkeys were distributed to families and seniors in need of a little Thanksgiving cheer.
Once the turkeys were allotted it was time to enjoy fellowship. Each year the Nan Knox Unit holds its Annual Thanksgiving Dinner. 200 members and their parents attended enjoying delicious treats prepared by Nan Knox staff and volunteers.
As we go into the holiday season, we are reminded of the many things we have to be grateful for. The events of the day and the gracious generosity of the NBPA reminds us all that we are blessed with much.
