For Kendall Coleman, it’s all about giving.

“Giving is the best part,” Coleman said. “Always. It makes you feel good.”

Coleman is the Executive Director of the Jason P. Wallace Foundation, an organization that was honored during Friday night’s Timberwolves home game versus the Washington Wizards.

The Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation continued its Season of Giving honors Friday night by welcoming the Jason P. Wallace Foundation to the Target Center during the third quarter for a crowd ovation.

Throughout the month of December, the Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation focuses it’s efforts on improving the holiday season for Minnesotans in need, as well as recognizing those in the community whose work assists others.

The Jason P. Wallace Foundation encourages positive personal growth in the lives of youth through education, life skills and recreational sports. This holiday season the Jason P. Wallace Foundation distributed gifts to over 140 families, handed out over 100 turkeys and hosted a youth sports clinic.

“A lot of our youth giving is through sports,” Coleman said. “We donate uniforms to a lot of different football and basketball teams in north and south Minneapolis.”

Minnesota Timberwolves President Chris Wright and SPIRE Federal Credit Union CEO Dan Stoltz presented a team signed ball to Executive Director Kendall Coleman.

In the past year, the Minnesota Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation and the Minnesota Lynx Foundation have combined to impact 2,028 organizations with $750,000 in-kind donations, 60,000 Tickets for Kids donations, 4,226 volunteer hours, 45 Heroes in the Making on-court presentations and fourteen $5,000 grants.
