Tuesday evening, White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson and his wife Bria donated 205 turkeys to families living in his hometown of Tuscaloosa, Ala., with their annual Homepla7e Turkey Drive, held at Hillcrest High School and this year delivered via a socially-distant drive-thru.
Throughout his career, Anderson has been committed to supporting families in need. In addition to this annual turkey drive, the 2020 Silver Slugger Award winner created Anderson’s League of Leaders (ALOL) to provide youth affected by gun violence with mentorship and the tools needed to succeed. Through ALOL, Anderson has hosted Chicago youth for a cultural tour of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, held numerous events to give back to his communities, and just last year presented a family with $1,000 in holiday presents during a special meet-and-greet at Guaranteed Rate Field.
In addition to news of Anderson’s charitable giving, the White Sox released their annual Thanksgiving video, narrated by Jason Benetti:
We at South Side Sox will piggyback on the White Sox and wish you and all of your family a safe Thanksgiving. Let’s all hope for a much healthier and happier one in 2021.
