The North Texas Food Bank has teamed up with an online fantasy sports game in seeking donations on Thanksgiving. The #Thanksk4Giving Pick 6 will offer prizes, including an autographed Tony Romo jersey, Cowboys game tickets and a game-day football.
Fantasy 6 says the game is a “simple, fast contest,” with all proceeds going to the North Texas Food Bank.
The contest is online at www.thanks4giving.com. Fans can make their picks in six positions – including quarterbacks such as Romo of the Cowboys – and a donation to the North Texas Food Bank.
“We’re so pleased to have the support of Fantasy 6 this Thanksgiving to help kick off our fundraising campaign for the holiday season,” Lisa Farrow of the North Texas Food Bank said. “The #Thanks4Giving Pick 6 is an innovative way for football fans to get involved in the fight against hunger, the funds raised will make a true difference for our neighbors in need.”

Farrow said each dollar donated will provide access to three meals for those in need. In fiscal year 2015, NTFB provided 63.4 million meals.
