Golden State Warriors Star Stephen Curry & Wife Ayesha Donate to Over 400 Families in Need
While working on Christmas might have been beneficial for Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, whose team beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in an 89-83 victory, the point guard sought out to spread holiday cheer in an even bigger way. Along with his wife Ayesha, Stephen donated toiletries and food to over 400 families in need on Saturday (Dec. 26) through the Feed the Children organization.
The 27-year-old NBA star, his 26-year-old wife, and the Golden State Warriors family collaborated with Feed the Children to help distribute boxes of goods to hundreds of families in the Oakland, California area. They supplied Bay Area residents with 25-pound boxes of various food items and 10-pound boxes of personal hygiene products.
"Being able to impact the East Bay community and the Bay Area at large is definitely important with this being our home," Stephen told ABC News. "It's nice that what we do on the court can continue to shed light on the initiatives that we have off the court that are, in the grand scheme of things, a lot more important."

This is the third year in a row Stephen teamed up with Feed the Children to make a difference in the world.
Giving back is nothing new for these NBA players. Stephen and several other members from the Golden State Warriors have used their status to bring awareness to different issues including health, education, handicap capabilities, and more.
The charitable event was a part of Warriors' Season of Giving outreach program, which is funded and supported by the Stephen Curry Foundation and Warriors in the Community Foundations.
For those unfamiliar with Feed the Children, the organization specializes in providing life essentials and resources to children and families around the world. Their mission is to one day end child hunger.
Fans can catch Stephen and the rest of the Golden State Warriors kick off the Western Conference on Monday (Dec. 28) at 10:30 p.m. against the Sacramento Kings.
