That afternoon, Jordan and record mogul Ted Lucas teamed up to deliver Thanksgiving baskets with all the trimmings to several impoverished families in North Miami-Dade County.

Sponsors of the turkey distribution and door-to-door basket donations are Signature Flight Support, Odebrecht, World Waste Recycling, Miami Dolphins, Ted Lucas Foundation, Feeding South Florida, and Atlantic Aviation.
