Atlanta Hawks forward, John Collins, teamed up with the Atlanta Hawks Foundation , State Farm, and Goodr to ease the growing hunger in the city of Atlanta due to the coronavirus. They opened three pop up shop grocery stores in Atlanta targeted to seniors and low income families. Each store provided 300 families with enough food for two weeks.
“The city of Atlanta is my home, which is why it’s so important for me to help the local community and give back during these difficult times. I am especially excited that we are continuing to support our arena part- time staff, who often work additional jobs to make ends meet with these groceries. I’m proud to be working with the Hawks Foundation, State Farm, and Goodr to make sure people are getting the food and meals they need”, stated Collins in a news release.
