It was a star-studded night at Ingersoll Community Center.
Shaun Rogers, a defensive tackle for the New York Giants, joined defensive lineman Shaun Smith of the Kansas City Chiefs and rapper Fabolous to help hand out free turkeys to needy families.
"It's a great thing for our community," said Ken Joseph, who came to Thursday's event to represent his union, NYSCOPBA. "We need to give back."
Despite an injury that kept him from joining his Super Bowl-winning team on the field this season, Rogers was front-and-center helping young volunteers like Dwayne, 14, pass off Thanksgiving turkeys to people waiting in line at the community center's gym.
Coordinated by the office of Councilwoman Letitia James, D-Brooklyn, the event gave away more than 50 turkeys, according to an organizer.
Hip-hop pioneer Ralph McDaniels, University Settlement, LAUNT Clothing, 4Real Doe Entertainment, Walk In My Shoez Foundation, Charlene Thomas, Wondagroup Media, Brickface Clothing, Hillary Weston, Blak Republik Inc. and Beverly Monroe, Inc. also sponsored the event.
