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.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet and talk with some special people, nurses, doctors, front line responders and healthcare workers from two hospitals @Rexhealthcare and MedStar Washington Hospital Center. I became very familiar with each of these hospitals during my mom’s battle with breast cancer. I wanted to thank them for all the care they provided to me and my family, and most importantly thank and acknowledge them for all of their work and sacrifice to fight the COVID-19 virus. I am honored that I was able to help them with donations of N95 masks and Chick-Fil-a meals in honor of my best friend and mother Frances Pulley. Thank you will never be enough for all that you have done and continue to do!! #JWFF #cfaFairfax #ChickfilaLakeBooneTrail @CloseUp360 @WashWizards
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.
