San Antonio Spurs legend and downright decent guy Tim Duncan has teamed up with HEB and the San Antonio Food Bank to help the people of his homeland impacted by recent hurricanes.
HEB tweeted a picture Sunday of Duncan delivering groceries to people in the hard-hit U.S. Virgin Islands. According to the tweet, their efforts have so far resulted in over 400,000 pounds of food being delivered to people in need.
Duncan was 13 when Hurricane Hugo devastated his home of Saint Croix. He’s set up a YouCaring fund to raise money for the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands, who have been in crisis since Hurricanes Irma and Maria battered the islands last month.
Stacey Plaskett, current U.S. Virgin Islands delegate to the House of Representatives, recently told MSNBC, “I can’t tell you the low morale that the people of the Virgin Islands have right now about how the federal government and the rest of the Americans feel about them because we hear nothing; nothing about the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands.”
