Well, since we don't have a Magic game to recap today (let's get these arenas in shape, people!) I wanted to focus on a fantastic event coming up with Chris Duhon. The Chris Duhon Stand Tall Foundation works towards helping fund education, welfare, and recreational initiatives. Their mission states:
“Everyday is an opportunity to contribute to the quality of a child's life, through recreation, education and welfare. Chris Duhon's Stand Tall Foundation is committed to building up children who are the foundation of our communities. We believe an educated child has unlimited possibilities and it is our desire to serve the community in ways that are significant and will directly benefit the community's most valued citizens, children and youth.”
On November 4th, Chris Duhon and the Stand Tall Foundation are taking a stand against hunger with Fairwinds Credit Union for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. The kick off food drive is from 3 pm to 7 pm at Fairwinds Credit Union (3087 N. Alafaya Trail, Orlando, FL 32826). Items they’re looking to collect are non-perishable such as canned meats, vegetables, and fruits, dry beans, pasta/macaroni, rice and oatmeal, as well as baby food and diapers.
Let’s take Chris up on his challenge to Magic fans and give back to our community! The food drive ends Monday, November 15th. To learn more about how you can help, visit http://www.chrisduhonstandtall.org/
