Utah Jazz power forward Trevor Booker has been a consistent NBA player since joining the Washington Wizards in 2010 as a first round pick. When he came to Utah in 2014 he wanted to establish both his place on the team and his place in the community. Not one to shy away from his responsibility to the community as a professional athlete, Booker has taken advantage of the opportunity he’s had to help out those less fortunate than him by participating in events around the Utah area.
On Thanksgiving day of this year Booker teamed up with Bountiful Community Food Pantry to serve his community once again, putting on an event called “Booker’s Thanksgiving Assist” on the Sunday prior to turkey day with the goal of making sure six family’s pantry’s were stocked with food. The event took place at Smith’s Marketplace in Bountiful, Utah and went off without a hitch. Each family came in, stocked up, and no doubt had a great day full of family and fellowship on Thanksgiving day.
“It’s just another way to give back,” said Booker. “Some families are not as fortunate as others. I picked out a few families to help out to make them feel special and get them together with their families so they can have a nice meal on Thanksgiving.”
Booker is in the first year of a two-year deal with the Jazz, and the fans already love him. He’s been embraced by the Utah faithful, who love him on and off the court, and for good reason.
