|Titans linebacker David Thornton and several of his family members provided turkey dinners to 100 families from Nashville's Martha O'Bryan Center.|
This marked the fifth year that Thornton provided these holiday dinners and this year. Fifteen members of his family traveled from Goldsboro, N.C. to help him with the event and then enjoy the holiday with the Titans linebacker.
His parents, the Rev. Arnold and Janice Thornton, and their extended family members joined eight of Thornton's teammates and youth volunteers from Martha O'Bryan in distributing meals to the appreciative guests.
"Tonight is a very special evening," said Thornton at the event. "Having an opportunity to serve the community always means a lot. To make it more special tonight, 15 members of my family drove in from North Carolina to help serve and give back as well. We always believe it's a blessing to be a blessing to others."
