Anthony Davis served Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless last night

Anthony Davis and his family served 300 homeless men at the New Orleans Mission last night. It was the first event of the season for Davis and his charity, AD’s Flight Academy, in New Orleans. AD’s Flight Academy is a series of community service events throughout the year; last season he did a number of events with underprivileged teens around the city, including trips to the bowling alley, movie theater and laser tag.

Thanksgiving dinner with Davis has become an annual tradition in NOLA.

“I was trying to give Thanksgiving to some people who might not have family around or are less fortunate to celebrate,” heĀ told NOLA.com. ”So I brought my family here and some of my closest friends to celebrate with these people. It’s an honor. They talked about basketball and they’ll post me up and all this. It is just fun to see them smile.”
