Former Baltimore Raven, Ed Reed, with support of the United Way of Central MD, ShopRite, private donors and public support, will once again be feeding almost 3,000 people for Thanksgiving.
On the afternoon of Friday, November 17th, Ed will visit The SEED School of Maryland (SEED Maryland) to personally give Thanksgiving meals to all 400 students, to take home for their families.
“Being able to help a community in need, similar to the community I grew up in, is a blessing,” says Reed. “To give a Thanksgiving meal to thousands of people is only the start, each year we grow to help more and more.”
Earlier in the day, at 10:00 AM, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings, the U.S. Representative for Maryland’s 7th congressional district, and SEED Maryland Board of Trustees member, will join the students, faculty, families and friends to express his gratitude to the volunteers and charitable organizations supporting this effort.
Jon Tucker, Head of School for The SEED School of Maryland, commented that, “We are truly grateful for the support we receive from philanthropists such as Ed Reed, volunteers and organizations like the United Way and the Ed Reed Foundation, for their relentless dedication to the children of Baltimore and community betterment.”
With the support of local businesses, the Ed Reed Foundation is committed to helping those in need via local schools and shelters who have identified particular families for these Thanksgiving blessings. The Foundation also gives food to students of Booker T. Washington Middle School & Loving Arms Youth Shelter among others.
