Spurs take a trip to the San Antonio Food Bank

The service aspect of the Spurs continues with some of their newest members

The San Antonio Spurs continue their quest for players to participate in community service here the Alamo City. Last week, Spurs Give, along with Doug McDermott, Zach Collins, and Manu Ginobili, visited the San Antonio Food Bank.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is on the board of the S. A. Food Bank and helps focus a spotlight on the needs of San Antonio families struggling with food insecurity.

People can donate or volunteer time as a means of support.

A few years ago, I was fortunate to be able to take a cohort of high school students to the Food Bank to participate in a cooking class with Aron Baynes.

A moment of the excursion was captured and used in the “Spurs!” video years ago by the “hit” “band” Spuran Spuran (shoutout to Matt Bonner). You can see Baynes at the 1:06 spot making pizza with some students. (Yours truly is to his left in the super fashionable beanie.)

The season is young and one thing Pounders can expect from Spurs culture is more of these trips, additional volunteer outings, and community service from all levels of the Spurs organization.

Go Spurs Go!
