Many players of the National Basketball Association have made donations to their arena staff in wake of the NBA’s season being suspended. Of course, if there are no games being played then employees of these arenas who are paid hourly are now out of a pay check. While that’s indeed a serious matter that’s thankfully being attended to, the nation still needs all the help it can get for COVID-19 testing.
Former Kentucky Wildcat and current Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns took to Twitter on Sunday evening to announce his donation of $100,000 to Mayo Clinic’s efforts in fighting COVID-19.
This comes hours after Mayo Clinic opened a “Drive Thru” testing site in Rochester, MN. Outstanding props to Towns for his donation and commitment to fighting a virus that’s having an influence on so much more than just the state of the NBA.
