A Knicks Thanksgiving 2009
On Thursday, November 19th, Jared Jeffries of the New York Knicks, The Garden of Dreams Foundation and The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. brightened the day for many families of The Children’s Aid Society. Jeffries kicked off the Day of Giving with a visit to the Dunlevy Milbank Center’s daycare program and stocked the center’s food pantry which serves needy families year round. Baby food, car seats, strollers and other products were also handed out to families. In the afternoon Jeffries along with a few teammates, the Knicks City Dancers and Irwin Simon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hain Celestial, handed out 300 all-natural Plainville Farms® turkeys to families serviced by Children’s Aid for their Thanksgiving Day meals.
