NBA star James Harden teamed up with his mother and several Black churches in Houston to treat several families to a hearty Thanksgiving dinner.

Harden and his 3 The Harden Way Foundation host their annual Thanksgiving dinner, which provides meals to less-fortunate families in the surrounding area.

Harden says that being able to give back to his community is a blessing.

"Especially around these holidays," Harden said. "You have a lot of people who just don't have the love and support and abilities to be able to eat and share good times with close family members and friends. This is an opportunity where I come in and just try to give them a few hours of that time."

He told KHOU 11, "Ever since I've been in Houston, I've been finding ways to put my footprint on this city, and now we're at year eight," he said. "It's just going to continue to grow. Continue to get better, and hopefully, at the end of the time, we've impacted a lot of people in the city."
