New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony took a break from basketball and traveled to his hometown of Red Hook, Brooklyn to lend a hand.Through his charity, the Carmelo Anthony Foundation in conjunction with Feed The Children and Metro Ministries, the Knicks captain delivered 500 boxes filled with food and supplies just one block from where he grew up. Many of the residents there have been without power since the storm.
“I wanted to step up to the forefront,” said Anthony, who spoke to reporters on the scene. “We all know what Sandy did to our city,especially to Brooklyn, and to Red Hook, with us being right here on the water. It hit us pretty bad, so I feel like I’m the face of Red Hook and I wanted to come back and give back to the place I grew up.”
