It’s the season of giving around the United States with Thanksgiving quickly approaching later this week.

The Tennessee Titans took that to a new level on Tuesday by helping the local Nashville homeless population get a good night’s dinner.

The NFL team spent Tuesday evening serving food to hundreds of homeless people in tent city under the Cumberland Bridge.

“For the sixth year in a row, the Titans teamed up with The Bridge Ministry to feed the homeless a Thanksgiving meal on Tuesday night. Roughly 100 members of the organization – from players to coaches to members of the front office – took part in the event. So did other staff members, along with the Titans cheerleaders, members of the Blue Crew drumline, and T-Rac. Family members joined the group as well,” the Titans noted on their official website.

For members of the Titans’ organization, it was not about publicity. Instead, it was all about altruism at a time when those in a position to help are doing just that.

Candy Christmas, CEO/Founder of The Bridge Ministry, noted that the Nashville homeless population sits at roughly 12,000 people, including 4,000 children.

For at least one night, they were seen as a large part of the community. More than a good night’s food, that has to uplift their spirits during the holidays.

Great stuff from the Titans here.
