LeBron James Gives Back To His Community Again: He's Building Housing For Families In Need
LeBron James is known for giving back to his community. His latest move impresses fans once more. The Shade Room has more details on his latest gesture, and you can check them out below.
It's been revealed that one of the ways James has continued to give back is through his I Promise School.
Just in case you don't know, this was opened last year in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.
TSR writes the following: 'On Monday, it was announced that he would further his efforts by helping to provide transitional housing for the students and their families that are in need of safer housing.'
TSR cites the info from ESPN and writes: 'the LeBron James Family Foundation and Graduate Hotels announced their plans for the "I Promise Village" by Graduate Hotels, which will help “I Promise students whose families might be fighting challenges such as homelessness, domestic violence or other traumatic or unsafe situations.”'
Here's what James had to say about all this:
'Initially, our work was focused on helping these kids earn an education. But we've found that it is impossible to help them learn if they are struggling to survive -- if they are hungry, if they have no heat in the freezing winter if they live in fear for their safety. We want this place to be their home where they feel safe and supported.'
People made sure to praise him in the comments.
Someone said: 'Lebron is the greatest player on and off the court of all time and you can’t deny it.'
Another follower posted this: 'What he does off the court is what makes him the greatest basketball player of all time.'
