Former Kentucky Wildcats star and current Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker is making sure those who need it most are getting the help they need during the coronavirus pandemic.

Booker has opened up a coronavirus relief fund for those in need in the Phoenix area and has donated $100,000 that will be matched by the team charities. The foundation will collect donations through Booker’s live streaming of video games on Twitch.tv that he is playing while in self-quarantine.

In a press release, Booker said, “With countless people around the globe turning to streaming to get their mind off things, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to bring people together, raise awareness and help those in need at the same time. These are trying times that transcend basketball and I would like to call on everyone to be good teammates as we deal with this challenge together.”

He may just be 23, but Booker fully understands the importance of helping those in need.
