Just call him Mr. Generous! Celebrity father Cam Newton is planning to throw a massive Thanksgiving Day celebration for nearly 1,000 kids in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Around 800 underprivileged youngsters will be given a seat at Cam’s table next Thursday. Not only is the NFL star planning to feed attendees at the event, but he is also making preparations for kids to take food home.


Cam Newton’s Thanksgiving giveaway is one of many community outreach efforts that the football player’s non-profit organization has coordinated this year. This past summer was dedicated to the 2016 ‘Kicking It With Cam’ Celebrity Kickball Tournament that stood to benefit dozens of underprivileged kids.

According to the organization’s website,

“The Cam Newton Foundation is committed to enhancing the lives of young people by addressing their socioeconomic, educational, physical and emotional needs. The overarching CNF theme is ‘Every 1 Matters.'”

With such goal in mind, the foundation focuses on passing down invaluable lessons while spreading love and generosity. Cam Newton’s Thanksgiving gesture will surely place him among the more openhanded celebrities. We can only imagine how much Cam’s son, Chosen, will give back to the community like his dad in coming years!
