New dad Gary Harris makes heartfelt gesture for youth learning center

Gary Harris Nuggets

Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris, who was recently blessed with the ultimate gift of fatherhood, has decided to give back by donating food boxes and diapers to the local community.

According to Alex Labidou of NBA.com, Harris has committed to donate a total of 460 food boxes and 33,000 diapers to families under the city’s Clayton Cares program. Clearly, this is something that the 25-year-old holds close to his heart, and he expressed how it is a privilege for him to be able to help out in any way that he can:

“With everything going on, we’re all going through tough times right now. Just having an opportunity to help the school and with the kids [is great],” Harris said. “I have a son. So, I know how it can be with diapers, meals and everything. So, to just be able to provide a light for a group of people and help out the community, I just thought it was a perfect opportunity.”

This is a commendable gesture from Gary Harris, and one that will certainly go a long way. As he described above, being a parent has given him a new perspective about raising kids, so he wants to be able to help others out in this respect.

The Denver Nuggets will be back in action on Saturday as they take on the Miami Heat in their first NBA game since the season hiatus. Though Harris himself is expected to miss the contest due to injury. This season, the 6-foot-4 shooting guard has averaged 10.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.4 steals in 31.8 minutes per contest.
