Sixers news: Markelle Fultz hands out school supplies in return to his middle school
You could say that Philadelphia 76ers rookie Markelle Fultz is as talented on the hard court as he’s good of a fellow away from it. One could tell that with the way he found time this summer to give back to the community, as he visited his old school in Upper Marlboro in Maryland to hand out bags and school supplies to kids at the James Madison Middle School, an act covered by Fox5dc.com.
Markelle Fultz stopped by James Madison Middle School in Upper Marlboro to give a big assist in a back-to-school giveaway where he distributed 100 backpacks and school supplies to students.
Fultz has gone a long way since his days in Marlboro. After starring in one season for the Washington Huskies in the NCAA, Fultz declared to enter the 2017 NBA Draft, where he was taken by the Sixers, whom the rookie is looking to help turn things around.
The future is definitely bright for the 19-year-old Fultz, but he’s not letting that make him forget where he came from.
Hopefully for Markelle Fultz, the kids that received gifts from him will become good citizens in the future. It would be a bonus, though, if they become Sixers fans, too.
