Carmelo Anthony Donates to 800 Families

Carmelo Anthony Foundation partnered with Avon & Feed the Children to make the event possible.

New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony through his foundation donated to 800 needy families in the Bronx, as per Ian Begley of ESPN.

Through his foundation, Carmelo Anthony donated 800 boxes of food & other supplies to families in an underserved neighborhood in the Bronx today. Why did he do it? “I’ve been there,” Anthony said. “I have family in these boroughs & I know what it’s like. I know this seems minute, but this is big.”

Carmelo Anthony hopes the 800 boxes of food he delivered to Bronx families allows “them not to have to worry about how they’re going to feed themselves, their children or their grandchildren. If they have some food & supplies, hopefully it helps just to get them through the holiday.”
