Culver Launches Foundation In Lubbock
While preparing for his second season in the NBA, Timberwolves guard Jarrett Culver launched a new initiative to give back in his hometown of Lubbock, Tex. on Friday.
Alongside his family, the Lubbock native created the Culver Foundation to help those in need living within the community he was raised in. Speaking to Everything Lubbock, Culver says the Foundation's mission is to "give back to help others in need, and just make an impact in the world."
The Culver Foundation's first event included a court dedicated in honor of former Texas Tech player Andre Emmett, who was murdered at the age of 37 last year. The court dedication was supported in-person by Texas Tech Head Coach Chris Beard and Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman.

Wow all I can say is thank you. I am so blessed to be able to be part of such a special day and dedicate the Andre Emmett court with @theculverfdn to be able to celebrate his life and work so with so many people to give my city and my home Lubbock another amazing court for the community. What we do today matters for tomorrow, and we are stronger when we are united. #mystoryisbiggerthanme
