TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - Chicago White Sox shortstop and Tuscaloosa native Tim Anderson and his wife Bria donated 205 turkeys to families living in his hometown.

Anderson helped sponsor the Homepla7e Turkey Drive at Hillcrest High School Monday via a socially-distant drive-thru.

Throughout his career, Anderson has been committed to supporting families in need.

In addition to this annual turkey drive, the 2020 Silver Slugger Award winner created Anderson’s League of Leaders (ALOL) to provide youth affected by gun violence with mentorship and the tools needed to succeed.
