Cam Newton and his feathered cap handed out thanksgiving meals for more than 800 children Monday night in Charlotte as part of his foundation’s fourth annual Thanksgiving Jam.
“You see it grow each and every year with more people involved – that’s my delight that I get from it,” said the Carolina Panthers quarterback, according to Panthers.com.
In addition to providing thanksgiving meals on the spot, each family also received a second meal to take home.
Newton says the event allows him a rare chance to interact face-to-face with his fans.
“You never know what you’re going to get as far as questions, as far as reactions,” Newton said. “In my profession, it’s so serious, and this gives them an opportunity to see me and gives me an opportunity to see them.
“Seeing smiles on faces, it’s really humbling and it puts you in the holiday spirit. I just want to do my part and do my due diligence giving back to such a great community.”
