As it has for nearly 20 years, Garden Neighborhood Charities, the philanthropic arm of TD Garden, partnered with Friends of Boston’s Homeless to serve Thanksgiving meals to the city’s homeless population Tuesday. Volunteers from the Bruins and Celtics joined city and state officials to dole out 700 pounds of turkey, 700 pounds of stuffing, 25 gallons of gravy, 400 pounds of mashed potatoes, and 200 pounds of carrots. Among those taking part were TD Garden president Amy Latimer, Bruins owner Charlie Jacobs, Bruins president Cam Neely, Celtics principal owner Wyc Grousbeck and president Rich Gotham, Bruins alums Gord Kluzak and Rick Middleton, Mayor Tom Menino, Fire Commissioner Roderick Fraser, and Police Commissioner Bill Evans.
