Spurs legend Tim Duncan has returned to his homeland of the U.S. Virgin Islands to help launch a new children’s education initiative called “Yes! Our Kids Can.” Specifically, he and his wife Vanessa will be donating $500,000 via The Tim Duncan Foundation to help kick start the program, which is designed to help create higher education opportunities and career readiness for disadvantaged children.
He spoke at a press conference introducing the program, which can be viewed in it’s entirety by clicking here. (He begins speaking at the 10:10 mark.)
This is just another example of the huge charitable effort Timmy has put into his homeland. He also donated over $250,000 and countless supplies following the active 2017 hurricane season that included a direct hit from Hurricane Maria.
