Rajon Rondo is stepping up to the plate during the coronavirus pandemic to help those in his hometown.
The Los Angeles Lakers point guard and former star for the University of Kentucky has spent time during the pandemic helping those in the city of Louisville. Last month he donated exercise equipment and picked up the grocery tab for senior citizens at two separate Kroger stores. Rondo decided that was not enough.
Through the Rajon Rondo Foundation and in partnership with Lineage Logistics, Rondo donated more than 255,000 meals to families in need by supporting Louisville’s Dare to Care food bank.
“For the past eight weeks, my Foundation has been supplying and delivering prepared meals, groceries and gift cards to senior citizens and the families of the youth we serve on a weekly basis,” Rondo said in a statement to WLKY. “The need in our community is significant and this partnership with Lineage allows me the comfort in knowing that Feeding America and Dare to Care are able to help provide food to people who need it most right now.”
Rondo’s generosity is admirable. If you’d like to pitch in and donate, $1 to Dare to Care can provide enough food for three meals.
