76ers players Michael Carter-Williams, Brandon Davies, Tony Wroten, Arnett Moultrie, assistant coach Lloyd Pierce and CEO Scott O’Neil will deliver Thanksgiving turkeys and sides to 76 families at Lowell Elementary School at 3:15 p.m. Monday. Hain Pure Protein Corporation will donate all the turkeys. Hain COO & CFO Jay Lieberman will also deliver turkeys.

The families were selected through the Philabundance’s  “Kid Bites” program. It works with area schools to provide food for children and their families.

 “We are grateful to Hain for their generous donation and Philabundance for helping facilitate the delivery of these meals to kids and families in need,” O’Neil said in a press release. “The holidays should be a special time for children. We believe this SIXERS STRONG event can help them spend meaningful time with their families as they celebrate with a Thanksgiving dinner.”
