Celebrities are certainly feeling the holiday spirit this year as several superstars hosted turkey giveaways in their communities. The Kardashian clan, T.I., Big Sean and 21 Savage are just a few of the celebs who were spotted giving to the needy recently.
Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian-West and Kourtney Kardashian took a trip to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to give Thanksgiving meals to the less fortunate. The ladies provided meals to over 100 families in the community through their efforts.
“On Saturday, we held an event at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to celebrate this special week and to hand out food for Thanksgiving meals,” Jenner posted on Instagram. “As we head into the holiday season, it’s a reminder to be thankful for all of our blessings and I’m so grateful. It’s important to me and my family to give back.”
Roger Castle, chief development officer at the food bank, thanked the women for giving back. “We genuinely appreciate the Kardashian Jenner family for providing Thanksgiving meals to more than 100 families that face food insecurity in our community, for volunteering to distribute the food personally and for raising valuable awareness for our mission to end hunger in Los Angeles County,” he told PEOPLE magazine.
Big Sean meanwhile, traveled home to participate in Detroit’s Thanksgiving All Star Give Back on Tuesday. The rapper and his foundation, the Sean Anderson Foundation, gave out food for families in need in the Detroit area.
“Somebody asked me, ‘How does it feel to see such a long line outside?’ and I’m like, ‘It’s not a line for a concert. It’s a line because they’re families in need.’ So, hopefully this inspires people to want to give back more,” Sean told WDIV Local 4.
21 Savage really got into the holiday spirit, donning a red apron and serving Thanksgiving dinner to some 300 families on Tuesday night at a YMCA in Stone Mountain, Georgia. The rapper's mother was right by his side, serving meals with him.
The event, hosted by his Leading By Example Foundation, gave families a full Thanksgiving meal, replete with turkey, mac and cheese, dressing, mashed potatoes and more.
Fresh off his Red Table Talk controversy, T.I. participated in his 14th annual Thanksgiving turkey giveaway at the C.T. Martin Natatorium and Recreation Center in Atlanta.
The 39-year-old rapper's nonprofit organization, Harris Community Works, hosted the annual event. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms and city councilmember Andrea Boone also attended the thanksgiving turkey giveaway. "The act of giving is the best way to give thanks!" the city of Atlanta wrote in a tweet about the event. "Mayor Keisha Bottoms, TIP and council member Andrea Boone lend a helping hand to Atlanta families by providing turkey and trimmings at our annual Thanksgiving turkey giveaway."
Slim Jxmmi of Rae Sremmurd came back to his hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi to hand out more than 1,000 turkeys Tuesday afternoon.
“It’s important to do this because this is where I’m from and a lot of these people saw me growing up, they know me and see how far I came and I want them to know I haven’t forgotten about them or where I came from," the rapper told WCBI. "Sremm Life.”
Russell Westbrook also continued his Thanksgiving tradition, when he descended on Houston with the The Russell Westbrook Why Not? Foundation on Tuesday for Thanksgiving dinner. The event was held at the Jim and Barbara Morefield Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston, and 200 meals were served to the local community.
“It’s the first time we’ve done this in Houston which was exciting. It was great to see everyone who came out and I’m looking forward to working with the community and inner-city youth and finding more ways to continue to give back here in Houston.” Westbrook said.
Megan Thee Stallion decided to share some of the wealth this Thanksgiving, too. "I landed right off my flight and came straight to the @houstonfoodbank and hotties we've donated over 1,000 turkeys to families in Houston and still giving them out tonight and tomorrow," the rapper wrote on Instagram on Wednesday alongside a video of her handing out Turkeys.
"Thank you @houstonfoodbank and all the volunteers that came out for helping me give back to the city," she added.
Elsewhere on Twitter, celebrities such as Ice T used the holiday as an opportunity to call out the history behind Thanksgiving, while Lil Nas X simply wanted to repost his educational thread on how to make roasted chicken.
