‘Tis the Season for Hoopers to Give Back

One thing that doesn’t seem to be different about 2020 is a giving spirit around the holidays.

Dozens of basketball stars have taken to social media over the past few days to get the word out about their charitable causes and events. It warms the heart to see the resources, including their time, that these hoopers are sharing with the community – especially with the start of the 2020-21 NBA season just around the corner!

Defending WNBA MVP A’ja Wilson participated in a giveaway for kids in the Columba, SC area.

The Warrior’s second year man Eric Paschall encouraged his followers to keep building on an impressive $19k raised thus far for a charity sneaker raffle.

Despite being traded away from the Wizards this offseason, John Wall‘s roots in the D.C. area run deep. The now Rockets guard’s foundation is doing amazing work for folks who’ve been displaced from housing due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The people of Washington D.C. got to know their new point guard Russell Westbrook as he organized an awesome event for 300 local kids.

25 lucky kids in the Minneapolis area were surprised with a surprise screening of Pixar’s Soul as well as several gifts from Karl Anthony-Towns.

As we near the end of such a tumultuous year, it does the heart good to see these busy athletes taking time out for the fans that make it all possible.

Happy Holidays!
