WEST ENGLEWOOD — After he pays the electric bills Tuesday for two women's shelters, Detroit Pistons point guard and Chicago native Will Bynum will host a Thanksgiving dinner for the shelters' residents.

Clara Kirk, founder of the West Englewood United Organization, which runs Clara's Place and Clara's House at 1650 W. 63rd St., said Bynum will pay nearly $3,000 owed to ComEd.

"God is so good. First an anonymous donor paid off my gas bill, and now Mr. Bynum has agreed to pay off the light bill," Kirk, 72, told DNAinfo Chicago.
