400 needy families served dinner at the Ryan Nece Foundation “Power of Giving Thanksgiving Celebration”
400 families in need from the Tampa Bay community came together at the University Area Community Center to receive a Thanksgiving meal, along with 1,200 boxes of essential food and hygiene items. The Ryan Nece Foundation “Power of Giving Thanksgiving Celebration” provided families the opportunity to be seated and served a restaurant-style dinner so they could enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner together.
Nece, along with Tampa Bay Buccaneer players, attended the celebration to greet families, sign autographs and serve dinners.
