TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A cornerback for the Denver Broncos who grew up in Tulsa is providing Thanksgiving dinner gift baskets to 125 needy families this weekend.
Chris Harris' wife, Leah, will be in town Saturday to distribute the baskets on behalf of her husband, who is on the road for a game.
Harris is graduate of Bixby high School.
Harris' foundation partnered with Cornerstone Community Center and Arvest Bank to identify families who were in need of assistance.
Twenty-five of the baskets will be handed out to selected families at Cornerstone Community Center Saturday morning. The remaining 100 families will receive their baskets at an Arvest Bank branch later in the afternoon.
Harris says he feels fortunate to be able to come back home and help families at Thanksgiving.
