The “Season of Giving” continues with the Spurs Christmas tree giveaway

Two Spurs brightened the holiday for local families

Last week, the Spurs, in partnership with Methodist Healthcare, hosted a Christmas tree giveaway at the Methodist Healthcare Ministries at Wesley Health & Wellness Clinic Gymnasium on the city’s Southside.

“I’m in the spirit. I’m in the spirit of giving. I’m definitely glad they asked me to be a part of this,” Spurs’ Malaki Branham said.

The trees, decorated by Methodist Healthcare Ministries staff came in many styles from basic Christmas decorations to the celebrity-themed trees. Some of the trees had hidden gift cards to support families giving their loved ones a special holiday.

“It means a lot because just helping the community out here, this is where I went in high school. It’s been great just hanging out with the families from here,” said Charles Bassey. “Just hanging out with the families and the culture in San Antonio, it’s just great. I love it.”

This is one in a continuing array of Spurs’ Season of Giving efforts. There will be a bed giveaway by Ashley Furniture at the Frost Bank Center, and much more including a gift delivery in partnership with Elf Louise.

Stay tuned.
