The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offensive line, in conjunction with Publix Supermarkets, got into the holiday spirit Tuesday night by handing out over 1,000 full Thanksgiving dinners to families in need.
Bay Area families were able to receive the much-needed meals by stopping by AdventHealth Training Center on Tuesday evening. The 12th annual Turkey Time event was held outside of the new indoor facility, and players were on hand to give out the dinners and even $20 Publix gift cards.
Former Buccaneers offensive linemen Davin Joseph started the event back in 2007 with fellow teammate Jeremy Trueblood.
In addition to this year’s handing out of food, as a part of the newly implemented social justice initiative the Buccaneers matched a $35,000 donation from the entire Buccaneers offensive line. The will go to the Feeding Tampa Bay organization, which can turn a dollar into fourteen meals.
