Season of Giving 12.22.12 - 12:50pm
by Devon Jeffreys
Jerry Stackhouse and his Brooklyn Nets teammates went above and beyond this holiday season to make sure those less fortunate had a Merry Christmas.
On Monday, December 17, Stack and several other Nets took a group of New York children and young adults displaced by Hurricane Sandy on a shopping spree for toys and games at Cookies Department Store in Brooklyn.
Days later Stack, CJ Watson, Josh Childress and former Net Albert King helped the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) in their efforts to distribute food disaster relief items and to 400 Coney Island families. The event was collaboration between the NBPA, Feed the Children and Metro Ministries. The group also gifted 5,000 toys to New York City kids who may not otherwise have received holiday gifts.
