(Cleveland) - After hearing that their community partner, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland, had two of their vans stolen recently, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Jif Peanut Butter and Smucker’s quickly sprang into action to help.
The two organizations teamed up to provide funds to the Boys & Girls Clubs to purchase a brand new van! The Cavs and Jif and Smucker’s presented the new vehicle to kids from the Clubs this afternoon.
The van was filled with treats for the kids: new basketballs, Cavs tickets and products from Jif and Smucker’s.
Prior to the van presentation, Cavs Academy hosted a basketball skills clinic and competition for 50 kids from the Clubs, with a special appearance by Cavs guard Alec Burks.
Monday’s event will be the second put on by the Cavs and Jif and Smucker’s for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland: the organizations hosted a 5-on-5 tournament for kids from the Clubs in November at the Cavs practice facility, Cleveland Clinic Courts.
