Cam Newton feeds 800 underprivileged kids for Thanksgiving
Wednesday November 26th, 2014

Cam Newton has been hampered by injuries (and hackers) this season, but a rough year has not stopped him from giving back in a big way this Thanksgiving.

The Panthers quarterback brought 800 underprivileged kids together to be a part of the third annual Cam's Thanksgiving Jam, which saw the kids go through 75 turkeys and 500 pounds of potatoes, and each child went home with a bag of food to share with their families on Thanksgiving day, according to the Black and Blue Review.

Newton also provided face painting and games for the kids and busted out some pretty smooth dance moves while emceeing a game of musical chairs.
