DeSean Jackson, of the NFL Philadelphia Eagles, Mychal Kendricks and Dominique Rogers Cromartie took time out of their busy days to give back to their community on Monday, November 19th. They took part in the Family 8th annual Great Gathering at First District Plaza in Philadelphia. The event is a Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless and needy. DeSean Jackson , Mychal Kendricks and Dominique Rogers Cromartie actually served food at the event. It was sponsored by The Church of Christian Compassion. There were approximately five thousand people in attendance at the event. Desean Jackson also took time to take pictures and sign autographs for some of the children from Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. It was great to see the joyous expressions on their face when they meet athletes such as Desean Jackson. This is just one example of how DeSeanJackson is making sure that he has a positive impact on the community. It gives people the chance to see the man behind the facemask.
