North Carolina football legend Cam Newton is preparing to serve up much more than passes this week.
Newton, who is the quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, is rallying to serve Thanksgiving meals to more than 1,300 underprivileged children in Charlotte.
This isn’t the first time that Newton has gone out of his way to feed the less fortunate; this week’s “Cam’s Thanksgiving Jam” will be the eighth event held by the Cam Newton Foundation.
Newton will be partnering with his family members and more than 80 volunteers from JP Morgan and Harris Teeter to serve up the food. Additionally, all of the children’s families will be given a secondary Thanksgiving feast for them to make at home.
The event will be held at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina’s Kids Café Program in Charlotte.
The organization, which runs 40 different café sites across the Charlotte area, is dedicated to serving free nutritious meals and snacks to children throughout the year—and Newton says that this year’s Thanksgiving Jam is expected to be the “biggest one yet”.
