KD continues to give back to the OKC community.
Kevin Durant is no longer physically present in the Oklahoma City community but he's still giving back to those in need. Durant's Foundation recently donated $57,000 to Positive Tomorrows, a private school for homeless kids in Oklahoma City.
According to the press release, Durant has worked closely with Positive Tomorrows for years and has personally delivered sneakers to kids at the school as well as purchasing everything on the school's Amazon Wish List and funding summer break programs.
"Kevin continues to be a great friend to Positive Tomorrows, and he has been instrumental in helping our school grow over the last several years," said Susan Agel, President and Principal at Positive Tomorrows. "Still, we consistently turn away students due to a lack of space, and his generous contribution this year along with several anonymous donors will enable us to embark on our upcoming capital campaign debt-free. We are so grateful."
Durant has long been a supporter of Positive Tomorrows, personally delivering shoes to every child at Christmas, fulfilling the school's entire Amazon Wish List, and funding a summer break camp program. Last Christmas, Durant funded a new scratch kitchen and cafeteria that enabled the school to increase its daily capacity by 16 students in its most recent school year.
"We've already turned away over 60 students this school year, but without Kevin's generosity that number would have been much higher," said Agel. "He's been an instrumental part of our growth, and it means the world to us and to our students that he continues to believe in our children's potential and to invest their futures."
Durant will make his first return to Oklahoma City as a member of the Warriors on February 11th and he'll surely receive a villain's welcome but the people of OKC can't knock all of the charitable work he's done and continues to do for their community.
