TMJF's annual event blesses area PA families for the Holiday


On Monday, December 12, 2016, TMJF kicked off the holiday season, providing holiday meal baskets for 140 Philadelphia families at the Foundation’s annual ‘Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise’ in collaboration with ACME Markets, the Philadelphia Police Department and the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police.In keeping with the jersey number (27) that Jenkins wears on the field, The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation selected 27 local community organizations to serve as partners in identifying five (5) families from within the community their organization serves, in need of a festive blessing. Each partnering organization picked up the festive gifts during the event, and delivered them to their chosen families.The Philadelphia Police Athletic League hosted the event at the Cozen PAL Center located at 732 N. 17th Street in partnership with the Philadelphia Police Department. In addition to handing out dinner baskets, Jenkins, TMJF and Philadelphia Police Community Relations Officers hand delivered holiday dinner baskets to select families with children under the age of 12, surprising each child with toys. With support from the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #5, 27 area families received 300 toys this holiday season. 15578433_1547548671926871_7425364105966305098_n
