In a community project that would do credit to Celtic’s own Foundation, a Celtic fan in the USA has paid to ensure that some families have a better Thanksgiving, on Thursday November 26.
Erstwhile Hoops fan, Snoop Dogg, visited Inglewood neigbourhood in California on Tuesday in an effort to help families in need have a good Thanksgiving.
The rapper and his production crew, 1500 or Nothin’, joined Inglewood Mayor James Butts and other city officials at the Forum to hand out turkeys, which the city does annually.
This is the first time Snoop participated, and he made a significant difference thanks to his donation of money and time, Butts said.
“There is a greater need than ever here for families that require assistance around the holidays,” Butts said. “With Snoop’s help, we were able to hand out 800 turkeys.”
The Mayor said “People were very excited to get a picture with Snoop, he was very gracious.”
Snoop — real name Calvin Broadus, 43 — had contacted the city to ask if there was anything he could do to help the needy this Thanksgiving. He made a point of telling the mayor it would not be the last time he would work with the city to help the community.
In an instagram message Mr Snoop the Hoop said “Me n the mayor of Inglewood given bac !!”
Here is a video about his donation.
