The Baltimore Ravens are known for their activity and their giving back in the community. Anothy Levine Sr. is one player that stands out among the Ravens as a player who personally takes it upon himself to give back to the community.
Earlier this year I got to cover Levine’s celebrity bowling event which was a huge success. Levine’s foundation remains active even during the season.
Levine will be distributing Thanksgiving meals to families in Baltimore on Monday, November20th. Levine will be helping to feed 100 families.
It will be another great example of the Ravens doing great things to help the community.
Here is the press release from Levine’s foundation.

Baltimore Ravens Player Sets Out To Feed 100 Families For Thanksgiving
Baltimore Ravens Defensive Back Anthony Levine Sr. is excited to announce his first
annual turkey drive for local families this holiday season. Launched in spring 2017,
Levine’s 4Every1 Foundation is committed to helping at risk youth and their families build
better futures through mentorship, educational opportunities, and life changing
experiences. To date, the foundation has helped over 100 kids begin the school year
equipped with supplies and partnered with the Mervo High School football team
providing students with opportunities to excel on and off the field. 4Every1Foundation
put forth a new goal of feeding 100 families this Thanksgiving.
“I’m excited about the work we have done with Mervo. Those guys are like my little
brothers which is why it’s so important for me to not only do things like help raise money
to provide them with SAT preparation courses but also serve as a role model, showing
them how to give back to their community,”Levine said. “Feeding 100 families here in
Baltimore is the least that I could do for a city that has shown me so much support and
love the last six seasons. I just want to give that love and support back to them.”
The turkey drive will be held November 20th from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at Fort
Worthington School located at 2701 E. Oliver Street in East Baltimore. Families will receive
one turkey and a box filled with the following items: macaroni and cheese, collard greens,
stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn muffin mix, pumpkin pie filling, green beans, and mashed
