Hawks, UPS, GoodR Provide Thanksgiving Day Essentials - Fan Nation

During the week before Thanksgiving, the Atlanta Hawks and UPS, the official delivery and logistics partner of the Hawks, teamed up with Goodr, an Atlanta-based social impact startup leveraging technology to reduce food waste and end hunger, to provide ‘Thanksgiving Day essentials’ to more than 350 families in Clayton County.

The event, which took place in Riverdale, Georgia, at the Virginia Burton Gray Recreation Center, featured Head Coach Nate McMillan, Assistant Coach Joe Prunty, the 2020-21 NBA leader in rebounds per game Clint Capela, and the team’s 2021 first-round draft pick Jalen Johnson. They were joined by team executives, various members of Hawks Entertainment including Harry the Hawk and the ATL Hawks Dancers as well as volunteers from UPS.

“We are grateful to join UPS and Goodr in hosting this special pop-up just before Thanksgiving,” said Hawks Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility Andrea Carter. “Having Coach McMillan, Clint Capela and Jalen Johnson carve out some time for this event to impact so many families in our community speaks to what it really means to be ‘True to Atlanta.’”
