PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/24/11 -- As the holiday spirit swept across the country, LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles kicked off another impressive charity event to support those in need during this Thanksgiving holiday. Held at The Villa Sneaker Store on Broad Street in downtown Philadelphia, the up and coming running back gave out hundreds of turkeys to people in need. Jared Ginsberg and the Class Act Sports team were on hand to provide exclusive coverage and learn more about the class act running back. For video coverage of the event, visit www.classactsports.com.
"I'm just giving back... [The people here] support us, you know, week in and week out, no matter how good we play or how bad we do. I think it's a blessing, I've been blessed in my life, so it's a blessing to give back," said McCoy.
As a Pennsylvania native, the third year rushing sensation has continued to participate in charitable efforts over the past two years, including his own bowling event to support the ALS Association and hosting Shady Community Day in his hometown of Harrisburg. Some of McCoy's family members were also present at Villa Sneakers, including his father, Ron.
"This is a dream come true for him, and to give back to the city, he's that type of guy... Whatever he can do, he would do it, you know, and I'm very proud of him for being that way," his father said.
McCoy currently leads the league in rushing yards and scored a touchdown in nine consecutive games this season.
