With three days in between games, the Warriors have not only been hard at work at practice, but also in the community. The team’s annual Season of Giving is in full swing, and nearly every member of the squad has taken part. Throughout November and December, the Warriors have reached out to more than 5,000 Bay Area children and their families and provided them with gifts and meals during this time of need.
Most recently, Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry joined forces with Feed The Children, an international hunger relief organization, to feed more than 800 Bay Area families. The event took place on Thursday at Allen Temple Baptist Church, and by the end of the day the Warriors guards, their families and a team of volunteers had distributed two 18-wheeler truck loads of food and personal care items. Watch a video of the event below, view a photo gallery by clicking here, and for an in-depth feature on the bond between Ellis and Curry, be sure to read Marcus Thompson’s story from today’s Contra Costa Times.

The Ellis and Curry food distribution came a day after Dorell Wright hosted a holiday party for five single-mother families he adopted this holiday season. The evening proved to be a pleasant surprise for the families in attendance, as they originally thought that they were invited to Miss Pearl’s Jam House in Oakland to film a holiday greeting video that would air at an upcoming Warriors game. But in walked Wright, who proceeded to give gifts to everyone in attendance. Check out a photo gallery of the event, and see how Dorell Wright has turned in to one of the team’s leaders in these stories in the San Francisco Chronicleand NBA.com.
