This weekend, Washington Wizards star John Wall was spotted giving back to the kids of his community, giving away backpacks and school supplies as the school year quickly approaches.
According to WTOP, John met up with 300 students in grades three through eight at the Boys and Girls Club in Southeast DC, stressing the importance of education to them. “Just to be a successful woman or man in this world, you always want to have an education or degree to fall back on, so that’s one of the most important things I want to do and preach to these kids,” he said. “These kids might be excited to see me but I’m more excited to see them. They put a bigger smile on my face.”
