Feeding Hungry Families with the NBA’s Clippers

Submitted by on October 26, 2010 – No Comment

This past weekend, The Salvation Army was blessed to be a part of the Feed the Community event hosted by the Los Angeles Clippers Foundation and Feed The Children.

The Salvation Army Siemon Family Youth & Community Center in South Los Angeles is one of the stops along the way for Feed The Children’s “Americans Feeding Americans” caravan. So far the caravan has distributed food to more than 150,000 families across the United States who have been impacted by the current economic downturn.

The Salvation Army’s Mortimer Jones is impressed with the devotion of the Clippers’ players. In his association with the team over the years, members have not just shown up but have been passionate about visiting the Siemon Youth Center to interact with and encourage the kids and their families.

Forward Ryan Gomes is proof that “giving back” comes from the heart for the Clippers. In this video clip, Gomes says that he wants to bring the same enthusiasm he shows on the basketball court to helping people who are struggling.
