The Chris Paul Family Foundation and the Triad Dream Center, a local nonprofit dedicated to fighting the vicious cycle of poverty, joined forces to ensure 100 families in the Triad have food on the table this holiday season.

Over the past few years, Operation Thanksgiving Blessing has become a tradition in Winston-Salem and surrounding areas. This year more volunteers than ever helped fill boxes with enough food to prepare seven or eight meals, and a holiday turkey. Formally named the CP3 Foundation after star NBA point guard and hometown hero Chris Paul, The Chris Paul Family Foundation’s mission is to provide resources that strengthen and build communities in need.

Chris’ parents Robin and Charles were on hand during the event last Saturday Nov.12. Both said they were grateful for the Triad Dream Center and the volunteers. Robin said, “This is the most help we’ve ever had. It feels good to know so many people want to help.”

Triad Dream Center executive director Michael Watson said, “This is truly amazing. This is what the holiday season is suppose to be about.”
