The Lonnie Walker IV Foundation has partnered with Spurs Sports & Entertainment, Firstmark Credit Union, and Trusted Capital Group for the fourth annual “Turkeys for Teachers” giveaway, supplying 1,000 educators with free turkeys and goodie bags.

The Spurs 2018 draftee has moved on from San Antonio. The swingman played with the Los Angeles Lakers and is currently with the Brooklyn Nets. But the Reading, PA native made an immediate impact in San Antonio. His community-minded mentality fit right in with the Spurs culture.

Walker’s mom is still a San Antonio resident and his foundation continues to impact the community.

I was fortunate enough to rise along during his first season when he surprised many San Antonio residents with food for the holidays. His energy is infectious and the joy he brings to others is transparent.
