Kansas City Royals pitcher Aaron Crow will represent the organization on Wednesday as a volunteer at the City Union Mission.
Kansas City Royals pitcher Aaron Crow will take part in Wednesday's Thanksgiving feast at the City Union Mission, according to an official press release by the team. It will mark the seventh straight year the organization has been represented at the event.
Crow and other Royals associates will serve meals at the Men's Center at 12:30 p.m. at 1108 E. 10th St., while a number of other team representatives will also be serving a Thanksgiving feast starting at noon at the Family Center at 1310 Wabash in Kansas City. Born in Topeka, Kan., the 25-year-old Crow also took part in last year's festivities with a handful of other players.
The City Union Mission has generously welcomed families and individuals in need around Kansas City since 1924, and provides beds, food and shelter 24 hours per day and 365 days per year. The organization does not receive any monetary support from the government, and instead uses donations from local business and other organizations to continue to provide support.
