The Spurs are always finding ways to help the community.

As the Coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing, many Spurs players are finding ways to give back to the community, and in some cases, you can help.

Rookie Keldon Johnson is raising donations for the San Antonio Food Bank and South Hill Bread Box to help those in need by selling a limited edition T-shirt featuring some Spurs Fiesta colors, plus with a minimum donation of $50, donors will receive an autographed postcard from Johnson himself.

Dejounte Murray is teaming up with New Balance and the rest of the company’s sponsored athletes to donate $1 million worth of footwear to medical workers and those on the front lines of the pandemic.

Finally, the NBPA is matching more than half a million dollars in donations made by players between March and April. That includes Marco Belinelli’s donation to support a local hospital in Reggio Emilia, Italy during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as Luka Samanic’s donation to University Hospital Centre Zagreb in his home country of Croatia following a March earthquake.

The Spurs may not be playing at the moment, but despite being stuck at home they are still as active as ever in supporting the community.
