I’m quite pleased to read that a member of the Michigan “Fab Five” team is giving back to the community.

In February 1994, Juwan Howard founded the Juwan Howard Foundation. The Mission of the Foundation is to embrace at risk inner city children living with little hope. The Foundation provides assistance for a better education, expanded recreational opportunities, moral support and encouragement to at-risk children living in the inner cities of Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Chicago, and Michigan communities.
The Juwan Howard Foundation has been successful in providing over 31,000 articles of warm clothing to area children and adults living in Metropolitan Washington and Chicago, through its Warm Hearts Drive. The Foundation has also provided free basketball/educational camps to kids at-risk in Washington, D.C. and Chicago.
The Juwan Howard Foundation also sponsored a Literacy Challenge for Chicago students in 2002, rewarding frequent reading with a chance to attend Celebrity Basketball Camp. The Challenge objectives were to motivate elementary students to become avid readers; to develop lifelong readers and a love for reading; to improve achievement test scores; and to involve parents in their child’s reading development.

Btw, Juwan was the first NBA player to leave college early, and yet graduate on time with a B.A. in communications and a minor in business. Go Juwan!
