Thanksgiving is here and the New Orleans Saints are doing their part to help the community celebreate the holiday.

No player is a better example of this than offensive guard Ben Grubbs, who teamed up with the Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Louisiana to purchase 500 turkeys for local families.

The team’s official website has the details, with quotes from Grubbs himself:

“The good Lord has put me in the position to be a blessing to a lot of families and through my foundation we’re making it happen,” Grubbs said. “This Thanksgiving, we’re blessing a lot of families that may not have the chance to go out there and have a good dinner so it feels good.”

Grubbs started the turkey giveaway while playing for the Baltimore Ravens and decided to carry on the tradition with his family in New Orleans. Today marked his first Turkey Drive since joining the Saints in 2012.

“What’s so special about Thanksgiving is family,” Grubbs said. “It’s an opportunity to get together and make some memories. Every year my mom would come to Baltimore to cook for my teammates and I. Now that I’m married we want to start our own family tradition.”

Kudos to Grubbs for his act of kindness to the folks of New Orleans. In an NFL where the focus is consistently on the negatives, Grubbs is going above and beyond to little fanfare.

Have a happy holiday.
