Lin, Harden, Dwight give back for the holidays
The Rockets have been busy off the court with their annual Season of Giving.
Last week, they held a bowling event and visited the Ronald McDonald House. On Sunday, three of the team's stars held events as well.
Dwight Howard and his D12 Foundation tipped things off in the morning when he treated women and children from the Salvation Army Family Residence to a catered breakfast from the popular Houston eatery, the Breakfast Klub (Howard was spotted there around the time he signed this past summer and seems to have taken a liking to the place). Of course a holiday event wouldn't be complete without handing out gifts, which Howard did after breakfast.
James Harden and his family enjoy helping families in need around the holidays. They took six families to a Super Target to shop for items on their wish list as well as items they really need. The Hardens teamed up with Change Happens to choose families in need of assistance.
I'm truly blessed and would never take this for granted. Made it possible for 6 families from 3rd Ward… http://t.co/jPYCSACzLk— James Harden (@JHarden13) December 22, 2013
Through the Jeremy Lin Foundation, the Rockets guard and his family hosted 125 children from the Partnership for the Advancement and Immersion of Refugees (PAIR) at the Toyota Center for a holiday celebration. It was a carnival-style event that included fun activities on the MH Sky Court and board games, particularly a variety of Lin's favorites games like Twister and Connect 4. Lin also handed out special gifts to each child.
