Joel Embiid receives March NBA Cares Community Assist award

The NBA announced in a statement that Joel Embiid received the March NBA Cares Community Assist award for his work in the Philadelphia community.

The 76ers star worked to address homelessness in Philadelphia by donating $100,000 to Youth Services Inc., Project HOME and Sunday Breakfast Mission. He also was part of a $1.3 million donation to Penn Medicine in their efforts to combat COVID-19.

“I am humbled to be recognized as the recipient of the NBA Cares Community Assist Award,” Embiid said in the statement. “It has always been incredibly important for me to use the platform I have been given to create positive change. Housing insecurity and homelessness affect so many in our communities, and we need to come together, now more than ever, to support one another. I am proud to support organizations like Covenant House Pennsylvania that are working every day to provide essential resources and services.”
