The Bengals are lucky to have many selfless players who are always looking to give back to the Cincinnati community.

Embracing the holiday spirit, many Bengals have been giving back during Thanksgiving week.

For the third year in a row, Carlos Dunlap, Michael Johnson, Darqueze Dennard and Cedric Ogbuehi served dinner to the community at the City Gospel Mission on Monday. And this isn’t just a serve and leave type of thing. The players not only serve the meals but they also sit down and enjoy dinner and engage in conversations with the guests.

Johnson led the prayer, Dennard served dinner, and Dunlap and Ogbuehi served dessert.

Other members of the team including Josh Tupou and Jordan Willis joined Bengals staff members and executive vice president Katie Blackburn to take part in the Freestore Food Bank’s Thanksgiving food distribution.

Linebackers Preston Brown and Vincent Rey spent time at a homeless shelter on Wednesday night.

As we near Christmas, more Bengals will surely be getting involved in the community and we’ll keep you in the know as they do. If you’re ready for Christmas music, check out Andy Dalton singing Jingle Bells in his car.

Happy Thanksgiving! We’re thankful for all of our amazing readers and the Cincy Jungle community.
