Season of Giving: D-Fenders Give Back at Holiday Angels Program
As part of the NBA D-League’s Season of Giving campaign, the Los Angeles D-Fenders partnered with Connections For Children at the childcare agency’s annual Holiday Angels event. On Friday, December 21 Renardo Sidney, Elijah Milsap, Kevin Kruger and Anthony Stover helped children and families celebrate the season at Connections For Children’s Santa Monica office.
Each holiday season, Connections For Children joins forces with local businesses, childcare centers and pediatricians to collect holiday gifts for children whose families receive childcare subsidy. By definition, these children and their families are living below or near to the poverty level.
The D-Fenders players wrapped presents, helped families shop, and entertained kids while families select age appropriate gifts, toys, and games for their children. In the spirit of the season, the D-Fenders also donated approximately 500 books and 100 pieces of D-Fenders merchandise to the Connections For Children holiday store.
The holiday season is all about giving back and the D-Fenders were happy to be able to put some smiles on some people’s faces. Thank you Connections For Children!
