PHILADELPHIA, PA – (November 20, 2015) –
Philadelphia Eagles tight end, Brent Celek, greeted families at his annual Operation Thanksgiving, on Thursday. In partnership with ACME Markets, Brent Celek’s Take Flight Foundation provided 200 families with the fixings to create their own holiday feasts.

“Operation Thanksgiving is an opportunity to make sure no family goes without a Thanksgiving dinner. This year, my Take Flight Foundation and our partners at ACME provided 200 families with everything they need to prepare their own holiday meal. Although we try to give back through the foundation throughout the year, this is a special time to interact with families and make their lives easier.” - Brent Celek

In addition to turkeys, nonperishables and decorative plants, families were able to take home an autographed football. All attendees had the chance to meet Brent Celek and interact with Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders and Swoop.

Brent Celek’s Take Flight Foundation’s primary focus is to provide seriously ill and physically challenged children throughout Greater Philadelphia with daily support and life-changing experiences. With the mission in mind, Celek’s foundation partnered with local hospitals to identify and invite families in need to the holiday program.

Operation Thanksgiving was made possible through the funds raised at A Night at the Linc with Brent Celek. Celek raised over $130,000 at his fundraiser, earlier this month, to enable him to have a continued impact on the community in Philadelphia.
