Ravens Center Andre Gurode Provides 500 Turkeys to Collington Families

Baltimore Ravens Center/Guard Andre Gurode and
BCP Executive Vice President Larry Schugam

On Friday November 18th Baltimore Ravens Center/Guard Andre Gurode distributed 500 turkeys to the families of Israel Baptist Church and Collington Square School. Mr. Gurode signed with the Ravens on 9/5/11 and previously played for the Dallas Cowboys. He is a five-time Pro Bowl performer (2006-10) and two-time All-Pro (2007, 2009)

Melanie LeGrande (Ravens Director of Community Relations, Executive Director, RACTF); Heather Darney (Ravens Community Relations Manager); and Larry Schugam (BCP Executive Vice President) were on hand to help Mr. Gurode pass out the turkeys.

In addition to Mr. Gurode, several other Ravens players including Ray Lewis, Jameel McClain, Ray Rice, Ben Grubbs, Lardarius Webb, and Ed Reed were in the community last week to extend a helping hand in Maryland’s fight against hunger.

There are 466,000 people in the state who are food insecure, meaning they are unsure of where their next meal is coming from. Each year, the Ravens organization and its players commit to making a difference by feeding Maryland families.

We would like to thank Mr. Gurode for his generosity. Thank you also to the Baltimore Ravens and Melanie LeGrande (Executive Director, RACTF/Director of Community Relations) for always supportng BCP's neighborhood charter schools and school communities.
