Christmas came early for children at The Salvation Army’s Westwood Transitional Village in Los Angeles, as the Clippers teamed up with Fresh & Easy in conjunction with their Season of Giving Campaign and #ClippersGiveBack.
Players joined members of the U.S. Military, season ticket-holders and Fresh & Easy employees to spread holiday cheer. Reggie Bullock, Hedo Turkoglu, and CJ Wilcox passed out food baskets while posing for pictures alongside CEO of Fresh & Easy James W Keyes.
Families of veterans make up 40 percent of the residents and two thirds of the total population are children.
The NBA has a long history of honoring and working with our nation’s military through the NBA Cares Hoops for Troops Program. As part of the program, the NBA has joined together with the Department of Defense on this new “Commitment to Service” initiative built upon four pillars: Leadership, Transition, Community and Health.
