A nourishing meal with family and friends is a holiday tradition that makes the season special. At The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation, we are committed to making the season brighter for families who might not otherwise be able to share a holiday meal.On Tuesday, November 29th, The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation will kick off its annual holiday campaign by participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.Since 2011, partnering with 27 local church and social service organizations (reflective of the jersey number I wear on the field), the Foundation’s Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise has helped put food on the tables of hundreds of families.
