The NBA All-Star, along with The Russell Westbrook Why Not? Foundation, hosted a Thanksgiving drive through dinner event on Nov. 19 at Jesse Owens Park in Los Angeles.

“This year has been especially hard for so many people and so many are not able to spend the holidays with their families," Westbrook said. "I’ve seen the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on my community and I wanted to come up with a way to still do our annual event in the safest way possible. Giving back and showing up for my community is important to me and I’m happy we were able to give out these Thanksgiving packages."

This is the 9th annual Thanksgiving dinner the foundation has hosted.
