Hunger Hero and Detroit Pistons forward Tobias Harris has received the NBA Cares Community Assist Award.
Known for making a big impact both on and off the court, Harris is being honored for his widespread efforts to positively impact the lives and health of youth through active mentorship.
The Community Assist Award recognizes an NBA player each month who best reflects the passion that the league and its players share for giving back to their communities.
Harris will be presented the award during an oncourt ceremony before Saturday’s home game against the Boston Celtics. In addition, Kaiser Permanente and the NBA will donate $10,000 on Harris’ behalf to Harris’ charity of choice, Feeding Children Everywhere.
Just $.25 provides a healthy meal for a hungry person. So $10,000 will go a long way, providing 40,000 meals. That’s something to cheer about … even if you’re a Celtics fan.
Thank you, Tobias!
