Monday, March 30, 2020

Sixers managing partners Joshua Harris and David Blitzer, in conjunction with the 76ers' Youth Foundation, committed a "six-figure" donation to Philabundance on Monday in a move that will allegedly provide 20,000 boxes of food to feed 160,000 people in the Philadelphia area during the COVID-19 outbreak.

In a press release from Philabundance, the executive director of Philabundance offered thanks to Harris and Blitzer for stepping up in a time of great need for people in the surrounding area.

“This amazing show of support from the 76ers and its leadership will go a long way to helping us continue to purchase food and distribute it to our network of partners to help feed those in need,” said Philabundance Executive Director, Glenn Bergman. “We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of the Sixers Youth Foundation, Josh Harris and David Blitzer and thank them for being leaders in our community when we need them most.”
