Anthony Davis visited Baton Rouge flood victims today


The Baton Rouge area is still recovering from this month’s devastating floods, but today, some of the victims got a little pick me up courtesy of Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans spent the day at the Baton Rouge American Red Cross River Center, where they served food and visited with victims displaced by the floods. As you might expect, Davis was a popular guy:




He even pulled up Jrue Holiday on FaceTime to talk to his young fans:

Facetiming @jrue_holiday11 for some big fans!

Good on ya, Anthony.

Speaking of the floods, UK’s Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) has organized a drive for supplies to assist the victims. Donations will be accepted in the small paved lot by the PPD coal pile near John Cropp Stadium and the Wendell & Vickie Bell Soccer Complex, located at 570 Wildcat Court. To access the drop-off point, enter the soccer/softball drive off College Way and take the first available left. The drop-off point — staffed by SAAC members — will be open at the following times:

  • 1-8 p.m. on Friday — In conjunction with the UK men’s soccer game vs. Dartmouth
  • 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday — Prior to UK football’s season opener vs. Southern Miss
  • 1-7 p.m. on Sunday — In conjunction with the UK women’s soccer game vs. High Point
