CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — Some families in Camden got an early Thanksgiving surprise thanks to a local NBA product Thursday.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who plays for the Charlotte Hornets, handed out free turkeys and gift cards to more than 150 families at the Salvation Army KROC Community center.
The 25-year-old grew up in nearby Somerdale.
He’s the grandson of the late Reverend Renee McCleary, a well-known past and educator in Camden.
Kidd-Gilchrist’s Hornets visit the Sixers Friday night.
