DJ stepping up to do his part with helping frontline workers:

Dejounte Murray donates 500 pairs of sneakers to San Antonio frontline medical workers
The Spurs guard recently donated 500 pairs of New Balance sneakers for frontline workers at San Antonio's University Health Systems and the workers are incredibly grateful.

"As a thank you to healthcare workers in our community, San Antonio Spurs Point Guard Dejounte Murray donated 500 pairs of New Balance athletic shoes to our awesome frontline heroes! Thank you, Dejounte, for recognizing our hard working team!"

Murray graciously thanked the workers, applauding them for their efforts at fighting COVID-19 in San Antonio.

"No Thank You For Your Hard Work That Doesn’t Go Unnoticed!! Thankful That I Can Help Through These Tough Times!!"

Murray recently did the same for Seattle, WA hospital Virginia Masion Medical Center's frontline workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

Murray, who is from Seattle, donated 580 pairs of New Balance sneakers to hospital staff who are still providing care during the current pandemic.

My heart really goes out for Lonnie. This is a good way to use his voice and support others. Transformative for both.

Lonnie Walker IV commissions art for a good cause
Spurs guard Lonnie Walker IV hopes to use art to combat abuse.

Walker, who earlier this month revealed he had been the victim of childhood sexual abuse, has teamed up with three San Antonio-based artists to commission original artwork that ties into his personal story.

The pieces will be auctioned online, with proceeds tabbed to benefit Family Violence Prevention Servies.

"I shared my story with the hope that others who have, or are currently facing abuse know they’re not alone. It is so easy to want to hide this kind of hurt or harm from others, even to hide it from yourself at moments. I have taken some time during this COVID-19 hiatus to face this part of my past and I have found some peace. Now it’s my turn to help others find that same freedom,” Walker said in a release from his marketing representatives. “Abuse does not define who you are. With time, patience and a little self-love, you will overcome the hurt. You will rise above.”

Per the article, RapidArts, Brian Ellingboe and Armando Zimmerle were commissioned to create the works of art.
