New Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard and the L.A. Clippers Foundation Baby2Baby, announced this morning a gift of one million backpacks intended to reduce stress on low-income families headed back to school across Southern California.
Every single student in the Moreno Valley Unified, Inglewood Unified and Los Angeles Unified School Districts will receive a new backpack to start the school year. Leonard made the announcement at Cloverdale Elementary School in his hometown of Moreno Valley and was joined by Zooey Deschanel, Busy Philipps, Nicole Richie and more at 107th Street Elementary School in Watts to distribute backpacks in the Los Angeles.
“My goal this year is to make a meaningful contribution both on and off the court. This felt like the right way to get started. It was important to me to make this announcement in my hometown of Moreno Valley at my former Elementary School, but the benefits this program will have across all of Los Angeles makes today even more special,”
All in all, this is incredible by the Los Angeles Clippers and Kawhi Leonard.
