A former NBA star helped to make Thanksgiving brighter in Riviera Beach.

Jayson Williams and the Rebound Institute donated 100 turkeys to needy families Thursday night.

The Rebound Institute is a private addiction treatment and wellness center for top athletes, business professionals and executives, according to its website.

Williams has been through his share of troubles, prison time for a fatal shooting and DWI crash. He's on the rebound and trying to help others.

"When you help people who you know have no way in the world to help you back it's a great thing," said Williams.
