Dolphins players shop with local students for Thanksgiving dinner

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - South Florida students went on a shopping spree with Dolphins stars for Thanksgiving meal supplies.

The Miami Dolphins paired up with Publix to host students in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties to shop for Thanksgiving meals on Monday.

The kids shopped alongside players, cheerleaders and Dolphins mascot TD to prepare for the holiday.

The students were selected by their school principals to participate in the event.

Players said the event means just as much to them as it does to the students. “This event is always really fun for Lauren and I to come out, be able to interact with people in the community, all my teammates, former players, it’s just a really special event,” said Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

Students enjoyed food and drinks while shopping and went home with a Dolphins T-shirt.
