Oklahoma City Thunder Players Give Their Free Time To Charity At Target
This weekend the roster of the Oklahoma City Thunder managed to beat the Mavericks on, but had an entirely different job on Sunday as they got to work in Target at around midday. The Thunder were helping out the local charity Sunbeam Family Services in their annual Christmas drive.
Sunbeam Family Services is a nonprofit organization based in Oklahoma City (OKC) that has been serving the community since 1907. Sunbeam’s mission is to provide help, hope, and the opportunity for a brighter future to families and individuals in need. They offer a wide range of programs and services aimed at supporting families, children, seniors, and individuals in the Oklahoma City area.
The image above shows the 7″1 forward Chet Holmgren pushing a shopping cart in the store. As he earns $10.4 million this year, by giving up a day of his time to help out at Target this would be the equivalent of around $28000 of playing time.
Overall, Sunbeam is an excellent charity and well worth supporting. They help people in the following areas:
Early Childhood Services: Early childhood education and developmental programs for young children, including Head Start and Early Head Start programs. These programs focus on preparing children for school and ensuring they have a strong foundation for future success.
Senior Services: Services for seniors to help them maintain their independence and quality of life. This includes in-home support, transportation, and other services that address the unique needs of older adults.
Counseling and Mental Health Services: Counseling and mental health services for individuals and families facing emotional and behavioral challenges. They offer therapy and support to help people cope with a variety of issues.
Foster Care and Adoption Services: Sunbeam Family Services is involved in foster care and adoption services to support children in need of stable and loving homes. They work with families interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents.
