The Atlanta Braves Foundation will continue two annual Thanksgiving traditions this holiday season with the "Atlanta Braves Foundation Turkey Drop" on Thursday, November 20 and the "Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless Thanksgiving Dinner" on Thursday, November 27.

Kelly Johnson and his wife Lauren will go door-to-door in the Turner Field neighborhood, distributing baskets filled with Thanksgiving provisions, including turkey, stuffing, vegetables, and desserts just in time for the holidays, during the fifth annual Atlanta Braves Foundation Turkey Drop. Five families, selected by the Georgia Avenue Food Co-op, a former Atlanta Braves Foundation Grant recipient, will receive the Thanksgiving baskets from the Atlanta Braves Foundation.

For the eleventh consecutive year, the Atlanta Braves Foundation will help facilitate Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless' annual event to serve the people in need on Thanksgiving Day. A seven-course meal will be served, and much more will be offered to those present, including a "Kids Corner" with toys, books, and school supplies for children; a barber and beauty Shop with hot showers, clean clothing and toiletries; church services; free medical check-ups; a long distance phone call center; and a job referral and housing center.
