Sixers Give Away 76 Thanksgiving Dinners During School Visit In Olney

By Kim Glovas

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Students at Lowell Elementary School got a treat after school today, when some of the Philadelphia 76ers showed up to hand out turkey dinners to some fortunate families.

Ninety-six families whose children go to Lowell signed up for the turkey dinners through Philadabundance, and 76 families won the dinners in a raffle. Sonya Winters, whose granddaughter, Amani, goes to school here, was one of the lucky ones.

“Every month we get food from here, and I just been coming every month because I really need it, and I thank God that I won the raffle here the last month, and it’s just a blessing,” Winters said.

Sixers Guard Michael Carter-Williams was one of the players on hand and says the kids were great.

“They’re awesome, ya know, it’s good to see a smile on their face so that’s priceless,” Carter-Williams said.

The lucky families also got tickets to the Sixers game on Friday night.
