On Dec. 18, 2017, Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowl Safety Malcolm Jenkins and The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation (TMJF) provided holiday meal baskets for 140 Philadelphia families at the Foundation’s annual Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Police Department. Fellow Eagles defensive backs Rodney McLeod, Patrick Robinson, Jalen Mills, Jaylen Watkins, Corey Graham, and Sidney Jones were also in attendance to help anywhere they were needed. The day consisted of packing, filling and spreading holiday cheer to everyone around.In keeping with the jersey number (27) that Malcolm wears on the field, The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation selected 27 local social service organizations to serve as partners in identifying five (5) families in need of a festive blessing, from within the community their organization serves. Each partnering organization picked up the festive gifts during the event, and delivered them to the families of their choosing.The event was hosted by the Philadelphia Police Department at the Police Athletic League center in Strawberry Mansion. In addition to packing and handing out dinner baskets at PAL, Malcolm Jenkins, Eagles players, TMJF volunteers, along with Philadelphia PAL and Community Relations Officers hand delivered holiday dinner baskets to several families with children under the age of 15, surprising each child with toys. Many families received toys this holiday season, thanks to the generous contributions from Hersha Hospitality, United Bank of Philadelphia, The Ohio State University Alumni Club of Philadelphia and Damari Savile who each conducted toy drives for the Foundation.In the past year, Malcolm has continued to work with Commissioner Ross and others in the Philadelphia Police Department to explore and support department efforts to strengthen trust within the community. The ongoing collaboration underscores the spirit of giving during the holidays, and the importance of “giving back” to people living in challenged communities in Philadelphia, where 27 percent of households live below the poverty level.Thanks to the assistance of Brown ShopRite, the Foundation received select food items for the holiday dinner baskets. In addition, a grant from Keystone First was given to the Foundation to help assist in filling the baskets with the necessary food items. Also, a warm thank you to Dunkin’ Donuts (Cecil B. Moore Ave., Philadelphia, PA and Ogontz Ave., Wyncote, PA locations) and Starbucks (Flourtown, PA) for providing all our volunteers with the necessary food and drinks to keep them warm during the packing and delivering.
AS most of us are penning our wish lists and trimming the tree, there are thousands of families struggling just to put food on the table. 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. With your help, we will raise funds to continue to spread the spirit of giving through our Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise, providing turkeys and all the trimmings to 275 families in the Big Easy and City of Brotherly Love!Here are a few simple ways you can help us make a big impact:Make a donation on #GivingTuesday.Join us as a volunteer for the Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise events.Help us get the word out on social media using @TheMJFoundation and the hashtag #GivingTuesday.Take photos demonstrating why you love our organization and post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.Do something kind for another person.Your generosity and #GivingTuesday donation, will help us build our baskets and keep holiday traditions alive for 275 families in need.
