Mayweather in charitable mood

Press Release: World welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather will return to his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan tomorrow to host his fifth annual Thanksgiving Feast giveaway. Mayweather, who supports the giveaway through his own contributions, will arrive at the Madison Family Market in his childhood southside neighborhood at 2:00 pm and hand out 500 turkeys with all of the trimmings—including potatoes, vegetables, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pies—to 500 selected families.   "Grand Rapids is my home and I will never forget where I came from," affirmed Mayweather. "I'm humbled to be back here for the fifth year in a row and happy to be able to give these families a Happy Thanksgiving." Mayweather will remain in Grand Rapids for the holiday weekend as he is also set to host a comedy event to help raise money for cancer research in the area.
