Without a doubt, Carmelo Anthony, is one of the most giving players playing professional basketball today. For all of his generousity and dedication to helping children and families in need, he recently received the November NBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by Kaiser Permanente.
An official NBA press release reports, "In partnership with Feed the Children and Avon Products Inc., Anthony recently brightened the holidays for 800 Bronx families, providing them with healthy food, personal-care items and much-needed living essentials. Feed the Children has worked with the Carmelo Anthony Foundation for more than seven years, aiding nearly 5,000 families throughout Denver, Baltimore and New York City, including those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Anthony also spent time visiting young men at New York’s Rikers Island, encouraging them in their rehabilitation."
Way to go Melo!
