Aaron Boone helps give out food to families at Yankee Stadium for Thanksgiving

BRONX, New York (WABC) -- Hundreds of families lined up in the Bronx to make sure they received a good meal this Thanksgiving.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone pitched in to help at the pop-up food distribution site at Yankee Stadium on Monday.

Boone said helping people in need during this holiday hits home for him.

"It makes it more personal when you get in there and sometimes it's hard to load into a bag so it adds a little bit to the connection and feels like you're actually helping out," Boone said.
