Hoops Against Hunger

Author: Sasha Hausman

Hoops Against HungerOur very own Orlando Magic are true legends both on and off the court! They proved that this month with Hoops for Hunger. On Wednesday, March 12th the Orlando Magic donated $5 for every ticket purchased to the game that night.

Also, they donated a meal for every point the Magic scored (112 meals!). It doesn’t end there…the Orlando Magic also graciously raffled off two court side seats for an upcoming Magic game to anyone who gave a donation that night. Thanks to all of those efforts combined, Second Harvest Food Bank will be able to provide thousands of meals to our Central Floridians in need.

Earlier this month, The Orlando Magic and United Healthcare teamed up to fight childhood hunger in our community. 300 generous volunteers packed over 13,000 hi-five kids packs. These packs are delivered to schools that teachers can slip them into backpacks so certain students have something to eat over the weekend while the cafeterias are closed.

Volunteers included Orlando Magic players, Maurice Harkless and Andrew Nicholson, as well as Head Coach, Jacque Vaugn and CEO, Alex Martins. We cannot thank the Orlando Magic and United Healthcare enough for everything they have done for children in need in our community.
