MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Bucks’ Jabari Parker on Tuesday, November 22nd distributed 150 turkey dinners he donated to Milwaukee-area families at the House of Peace — a Capuchin ministry.

“What I’m doing here is just doing my duty as a human being, as a citizen of this county — helping the under privileged. People who aren’t going to be so comfortable during the Thanksgiving season like most of us and I just want to shine some light and give a smile and hopefully that can carry on through out Thursday,” Parker said.

The Bucks beat the Orlando Magic 93-89 on Monday night.

Parker had 22 points and made five three-pointers — beginning the night with a total of 10 for the Bucks.

The two teams meet again Sunday in Orlando.

The Bucks take on the Toronto Raptors Friday in Milwaukee.
