Over the last week, we have begun to write about possible NBA free agent and draft pick targets for the Washington Wizards. In these uncertain times due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, it is always heartwarming to see those who are wealthy give back to those in need.

John Wall donated N95 masks, the type of respirators recommended for use by first responders and Chick-Fil-A meals to the staff at UNC Rex Healthcare based in Raleigh. N.C. and MedStar Health based in the Washington area. His mother, the late Frances Pulley, received care from both providers before passing away in Dec. 2019.

Also, last Wednesday, Bradley Beal donated 50 computers and 100 Giant Food gift cards to students at Ron Brown High School in Washington, D.C., where he has built a multiyear partnership which helped him win the 2018-19 NBA Cares Community Assist Award.

Beal also partnered with PepsiCo to provide meals to children who don’t have access to nutritious food, in part because of the pandemic.

Kudos to John and Bradley for their efforts during these times.
