Quincy Pondexter gives away hundreds of food baskets

Posted by Eric Bleier on November 26, 2013

On Sunday, November 24th Grizzlies forward Quincy Pondexter provided and took part in distributing Thanksgiving food baskets to the New Directions Christian Church community (6120 Winchester Rd. Memphis 38115).

As with the previous giveaways, the families were provided with information on healthy eating and refreshments were provided to families waiting in line.

Despite it being a chilly day over 300 families showed up. Students from the Power Center Academy, employees of Huey’s and Bid League Movers volunteered their time to put the boxes together and carry them to vehicles.

Thanks to all who came out to help, and Happy Thanksgiving from the Memphis Grizzlies!
