NFL Player Treats 2000 To Dinner

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Hundreds of valley families will get to enjoy a hearty holiday meal this Thanksgiving, thanks in part, to a former Fresno State Bulldog who now plays for the NFL.

The Poverello House in downtown Fresno took delivery Monday of 100 turkeys, 50 hams and cases of stuffing, potatoes, and all the holiday fixings, courtesy of Richard Marshall and his wife Jasmine.

Marshall is a former Fresno State football player who now plays for the Miami Dolphins and Jasmine was a former member of the Fresno State Women's Basketball team.

The donation is a major boost for the charity and the people it serves, Poverello House Deputy Director Doreen Eley says.

"Oh just really very important to us. It's always very important to us when anyone comes down but this particular one will give us probably about 1500- to about 2000 meals that we'll do for people."

Poverello House currently serves 1,300 meals every day to the poor and homeless of the community- 365 days a year.

If you would like to make a donation to Poverello House or volunteer your time, you can call 559-498-6988.

As for their donation Monday, Richard Marshall said, "Jasmine and I chose to donate to Poverello House because we are in the position to give at this point in our lives."

Marshall also went on to say, Fresno is a huge part of their lives; "No matter where we are this is our community and we want to help those in need any way we can."
