Los Angeles Clippers forward Caron Butler is a native of Racine, Wisconsin. And as an act of genoristy, the 32-year old will be giving back next week by donating 200 Thanksgiving meals to needy families in his hometown. From The Journal Times:The two-time NBA All-Star and Racine native will be busy with team activities during the holidays but family members have volunteered to help hand out meals at the Dr. John Bryant Community Center, 601 21st St., from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 20.According to the release, Butler said, “Although I won’t be able to be there physically, I have my whole family in Racine ready to help hand out these meals to assist these families in time for Thanksgiving. We are thankful and blessed to be in this position to help others and with these blessings come a commitment from me to continue to give back to the community that made it all possible.”The Clippers rewarded Butler with a 3-year, $24 million contract last December and it looks like he has opted to spread the good karma on to others. It's nice to see pro athletes giving back in these tough economic times. I'm sure the families receiving these meals in Racine are very much appreciative.
