Kevin Durant Brings Joy to 40 Kids at Coalition for the Homeless with Heartwarming Gifts

The most well-known player in the city is already making the holidays happy, even if he hasn’t even participated in a Brooklyn game due to an injury.

On December 20, Kevin Durant, a standout player for the Brooklyn Nets, made a present delivery to forty homeless children, 32 of whom were enrolled in the organization’s Bound for Success program in Brooklyn. Durant visited the Coalition for the Homeless (CFTH) in Manhattan.

The event was organized by the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation (KDCF), whose mission is to enhance the lives of at-risk teenagers from low-income parents through social, physical, and educational programs.

According to Durant’s website, Thirty Five Ventures, the parent organization of KDCF, has awarded grants totaling over $450,000 to combat child homelessness since 2015.

During his first season with the Brooklyn Nets, the two-time NBA Champion and former MVP made an impact on the neighborhood.

I truly just want to give back to the community via what we do since I play here and am now a part of it, Durant said. “I wanted to help as much as I could.”

The children were greeted by dozens of large red sacks filled with toys, such as LEGOs and a Peppa Pig Magna Doodle board.

According to the Nets, two families that were featured in a recent New York Times article that shed awareness on the daily hardships encountered by homeless families in New York City were the source of eight of the forty children.
