“Philly raised me and made me into the man I am today, so to do the first annual ‘A Dreamchaser’s Thanksgiving,’ was an obvious thing to do,” said Meek. “I’m blessed to be in a position where I can make sure that as many people as possible have a meal on Thanksgiving, so that they can be with their loved ones to enjoy the holiday.”

Local organizations Youth Working Together, Town Watch, and Unity In the Community will receive the turkeys. Meek will be on hand at the site. Philadelphia’s mayor Michael Nutter and other city officials are scheduled to appear as well.

“I applaud Meek Mill for taking the initiative to give back to his home town,” said Mayor Nutter.  “Gathering together with family and friends around a shared meal is one of the most important aspects of the holiday season.  It is important to give thanks for all that we have, and I am proud that one of Philadelphia’s own is donating his time and resources to make sure families in our city can do just that.”

“A Dreamchaser’s Thanksgiving” will take place November 26th and November 27th. Check out the locations/times below.
