Thursday Quickies: Cats Give Back Edition

The Cats spent the day yesterday giving back to the community

Each year, John Calipari finds a way to get his team involved with finding ways to give back to the community.

Yesterday, the Wildcats did just that by serving Christmas dinner to families and interacting with children. Keldon Johnson even dressed up as Santa Claus.

Take a look:

The guys even sung a song or two.

Overall, a really cool experience to see these guys in a different environment than we normally see them, showing us all that despite their high profile, they’re still college students having fun and giving back.
