It is All Star weekend. One generally thinks of these weekends as celebratory, partying
weekends.

Players and former players doing good deeds in the background.

HELPING OUT: Union executive director Billy Hunter joined several current and former players Saturday afternoon distributing food and other household items to more than 3,000 families as part of partnership between the union, Feed the Children and the City of Orlando.

Players that participated in handing the supplies included union vice president and Washington forward Maurice Evans, Boston’s Keyon Dooling, Minnesota’s Anthony Tolliver, San Antonio’s Matt Bonner and Atlanta’s Willie Green. Former players included Theo Ratliff and Kermit Washington.

Recipients received a 25-pound box of food items and 10-pound bag of other supplies, which are supposed to last a typical family about a week. The NBPA sponsored eight semi-trucks full of items that gave out items at different locations.
