Former Boston Celtic Al Horford might not play for the Massachusetts franchise any longer, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten about his fans there.
Horford is also making equivalent donations to help his native Dominican Republic, and four other locations he either plays or played basketball in – Michigan, Florida, Atlanta and Philadelphia.
The five-time All-Star played high school and AAU basketball in Michigan before becoming a member of the Florida Gators in college, where he won two NCAA championships with center Joakim Noah.
76ers’ Al Horford has donated $500,000 to aid coronavirus pandemic in his home country of the Dominican Republic, as well as each U.S. region in which he has played basketball.
