Happy Thanksgiving

This story on the Giants site explains why it's been a pleasure to root for Hunter Pence for the past seven seasons

SAN FRANCISCO -- The season of giving and gratitude that begins with Thanksgiving will be highlighted Dec. 4, when the Wender Weis Foundation for Children (WWFC) will take over AT&T Park for its ninth annual Holiday Heroes party for underserved children and their families.
Hunter Pence, who became one of the San Francisco Bay Area's most popular athletes during his 2012-18 tenure in the Giants' outfield, will be on hand with his wife, Alexis, to receive WWFC's Inspiration Award. The honor is bestowed upon an athlete who has used his or her sports platform to offer philanthropic support to Bay Area youngsters.
The Pences have been heavily involved in the No Kid Hungry Foundation, their efforts including designing a spatula that's being sold at a local Williams-Sonoma store to benefit the foundation.
"Alexis and I have felt truly fortunate for the opportunity to give back to youth in the Bay Area," said Pence, who's a free agent. "Holiday Heroes is an amazing event, and we're excited for all the children who will benefit from it."
