Carolina Panthers' star quarterback Cam Newton hosted hundreds of children at his 'Thanksgiving Jam' on Monday, WBTV reported.
Newton donned an apron and personally scooped plates of turkey and fixings for 800 kids in the Charlotte area.
While it is not the first year Newton has hosted the event, 'Superman', as he is nicknamed on the turf, said he was "delighted" to see attendance continue to grow.
“Seeing these smiles on family's faces, it’s really humbling and puts you in the holiday spirit,” Newton said.
“He really cares. And it’s not just all about the money," said Chris Edwards, who brought more than 80 children from Gastonia, N.C., "It’s about giving back and making sure somebody else has fun."
Newton joked that, even though his reigning NFC champion team isn't in the same position they were last Thanksgiving, the kids in attendance did not seem to care:
"All they want to do is have fun, eat, play dance and have a good time," he said.
Regional supermarket chain Food Lion helped Newton supply his 'jam'.
