Michael Guerra, chief development officer of the San Antonio Food Bank, Tweeted that the Food Bank assisted Duncan in setting up the feast.
Duncan and his team's efforts in the USVI aren't going unnoticed. Guerra said he was told "(the SA Food Bank is) known throughout the islands as the fastest and most well organized distributions."
Who needs the triangle offense when you have the triangle distribution. The 21USVI Bad New Bears brought Thanksgiving to more than 10,000 this weekend. Best compliment: "You guys are known throughout the islands as the fastest and most well organized distributions." @safoodbank pic.twitter.com/ghTW81aztF— Michael Guerra (@MiGuerraSAFB) November 20, 2017

He's championed the rebuilding of the USVI since September, immediately after the hurricanes and has raised $2,785,448 to date.
