A Benevolent Jazzman
Posted by Nancy on December 08, 2010
Deron Williams is not only a hot commodity on the basketball floor but he is also a man with a genuine regard for others, especially those who are less fortunate than himself. The all-star Jazz point guard heads up a foundation called “point of hope” which addresses the needs of single moms and their heavy load of responsibilities. Williams and his wife, Amy, recently hosted a Christmas Dinner for twenty single mothers and their forty children, all of whom have been struggling through some hard times. He was no stranger to such circumstances himself, growing up with a single mom who worked two jobs to make ends meet, and he is pleased to have the opportunity to help others during their tough times. Besides providing a wonderful meal, gifts were also distributed to the sixty guests who were greatly appreciative of the kind gesture. Williams acknowledged that he loves the Christmas season and the opportunity that this time presents to those who can give of themselves to make others a little happier.
