The two-time NBA All-Star is set to donate Thanksgiving meals to 200 needy families in his hometown of Racine, Wisconsin next Tuesday (November 20) just in time for the holiday.

Butler has enlisted the support of family members including his mother Mattie Claybrook, grandmother Margaret Bolton, brother Melvin Claybrook and a host of aunts and uncles to hand out the meals to the families selected by various City of Racine social service agencies.

"Although I won't be able to be there physically, I have my whole family in Racine ready to help hand out the these meals to assist these families in time for Thanksgiving," said Butler. "We are thankful and blessed to be in this position to help others and with these blessings come a commitment from me to continue to give back to the community that made it all possible."

Thea meals will be handed out from 4pm - 6pm at the Bryant Center, located at 601 21St Street next week.

A longtime provider of aid to his community, Butler continues his charitable efforts, which were magnified this summer when he donated over $200,000 to several area organizations -- including United Way of Racine County, The YMCA, Juneteenth Foundation, and the George Bray Center.
