DeSean Jackson and the Thanksgiving shopping spree. Image via @EaglesCommunity
There’s not much to feel about with regard to the performance of the Philadelphia Eagles on the field this Thanksgiving. However, wideout DeSean Jackson used his celebrity and place in the community to help a family in need with their holiday grocery shopping.
Jackson invited Trina Houston and her two grandsons, one of whom is bound to a wheelchair, to load out at what they needed at the grocery store. The boys’ mother Samantha was tragically murdered three years ago and their grandmom is doing the best she can to support them. The season may be a wash but if you want a moment where you feel proud of members of this team, watch this video.
Oh yes, and you’ll also be amused at the adorable, inquisitive young men, one of whom asks directly,”DeSean, what happened last weekend?”
We’d love to know that as well. But alas..
