The Rockets, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s G-Unity Foundation, and Kroger partnered for a turkey distribution at Toyota Center on Tuesday, Nov. 22. Rockets and G-Unity Foundation staff helped distribute 1,000 turkeys and Thanksgiving meals to those in need.
The event, which featured an appearance by Jackson, was open to the public in a drive-up format. Turkeys were distributed on a first come, first serve basis, with a limit of one Thanksgiving meal per vehicle. The meal includes food items donated by the G-Unity Foundation, Kroger, and Spec’s in addition to a ticket voucher to an upcoming Rockets home game. With supplies limited to the first 1,000 vehicles, only families in need are encouraged to participate.
As part of a partnership between Jackson and the Rockets, his G-Unity Foundation and the team’s Clutch City Foundation are working together to help impact numerous community initiatives.
