Nick & Christina Markakis to Distribute Turkeys for Thanksgiving for Maryland Families in Need

Orioles right fielder NICK MARKAKIS and his wife CHRISTINA will join the Maryland Food Bank this Saturday, November 21, from 11:00 a.m. - noon and help distribute frozen turkeys for Thanksgiving to pre-registered Marylanders in need. The turkeys were purchased using money donated by Orioles fans at the team's annual Food Drive earlier this year.

The distribution will take place at Grace African Methodist Episcopal Church, located at 67 Winters Lane in Catonsville. Fans donated over 4,000 pounds of food and a record-breaking $31,000 in cash donations to the Maryland Food Bank during the 23rd Annual OriolesREACH Food Drive this past August.

The involvement in this initiative continues the work of the Markakises, who formed the Right Side Foundation earlier this year to help distressed children in the state of Maryland.
