Los Angeles Clippers star forward Blake Griffin and newly drafted shooting guard C.J. Wilcox stopped by St. Joseph Center in Venice on Friday to help distribute hundreds of frozen Thanksgiving turkeys, plus food baskets with all the trimmings, to local families and seniors in need. They also distributed clothing and books. This is the 26th year that the Clippers, headquartered in Playa Vista, have held their Teamwork at the Table event (also a partnership with Ralphs/Food-4-Less) at the nonprofit St. Joseph Center, which serves the homeless and working poor. “To be able to come out and give back and interact with people in the city is great,” Griffin said. “They’re our whole support system, and they need to know we appreciate them.”
