Giving Thanks With LT

Each year since he’s been retired, LaDainian Tomlinson, his wife, LaTorsha, and his family provide 2,100 Thanksgiving meals to local families in Fort Worth, the home of his alma mater TCU. It’s a tradition they brought over from San Diego, when they did a similar outreach during his NFL career.

“Thanksgiving was a big time in my family when we got to be around the table with uncles and cousins.  It was really just about fellowship and loving on each other,” LaDainian said. “I do know in this community, it’s needed. There are a lot of people who go to bed hungry. So even if it’s just one day we can do this… that’s what it’s about. It’s the look on their faces. They are so appreciative. You don’t forget it.”

In addition to turkeys, Tomlinson and his corporate partners provide all of the fixings for a Thanksgiving feast, allowing 2,100 families from the area to give thanks on a day when we all come together over food, fellowship, and hope for the future.

The most patriotic thing we can do as Americans and as a country is reconcile our differences. That’s what Team America is all about. Just like the two sides of the Tomlinson family did, Team America aims to create an environment where we’re not forced to choose sides, but instead we’re motivated to stand together to determine the best way forward.

By supporting the programs and initiatives of Team America, you will be directly supporting the Team America mission and vision as we strive for an America where dreams shall no longer be deferred. Instead, let’s work together to become a country of accomplished dreamers and a land of opportunity and prosperity within which we can become that more perfect union whose future shall forever be defined by We, the People.
