Kawhi Leonard is giving back to students in a major way by donating one million backpacks just in time for the start of the new school year.
According to CBS Los Angles, Kawhi has donated backpacks to every student in the Los Angeles, Inglewood, and Moreno Valley Unified school districts. The announcement was made as he made a visit to his alma mater, Cloverdale Elementary School.
The non-profit organization Baby2Baby partnered with Kawhi and the LA Clippers to make the donation possible.
In a statement, Kawhi talked about his contribution and said, “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.”
