In response to the recent tragedies in North Carolina due to Hurricane Matthew, former Georgia star and current LA Rams’ running back Todd Gurley returned to his hometown of Tarboro on Friday, October 28 during his bye week to partner with the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.
The Food Bank selected the Tarboro Community Outreach Center, one of their 800 partner agencies throughout central and eastern North Carolina, for Gurley to volunteer within their soup kitchen and food pantry. The Tarboro Community Outreach Center has been distributing food almost daily since the hurricane hit from their congregate feeding site and food pantry. Gurley spent several hours serving guests meals and distributing food to those affected by Hurricane Matthew. After making sandwiches and packing groceries, Gurley took the time to sign autographs and take photos with fans visiting the center.
