ST. CROIX – Months after two back-to-back hurricanes devastated the U.S. Virgin Islands, the people whose homes were damaged or outright destroyed in the hurricanes gathered for a meal of thanksgiving -- courtesy of Spurs legend Tim Duncan and his team.

Duncan and his relief team organized a Thanksgiving meal on the islands, feeding more than 10,000 people.

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." 

Duncan has provided numerous updates in his endeavor on his Twitter account, @DuncanRelief.

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