Chelan High School graduate and Brooklyn Nets star, Joe Harris, partnered with Thrive Chelan Valley to keep kids in his hometown warm this holiday season. When Harris learned Lake Chelan Valley youth were lacking winter gear, he was compelled to help remove the barrier by donating hats and gloves to local students in need.
Regarding his donation, Harris said, “I’m extremely grateful to be able to give back during these challenging times. Giving back to my community that always took care of me is the least I can do and something that I take a lot of pride in.”
In partnership with Thrive Chelan Valley, Harris provided 380 pairs of gloves and warm hats to Chelan and Manson students. Items were delivered to Lake Chelan and Manson schools this week and met with deep appreciation.
“This donation will bring a smile to each and every student who receives a hat and gloves as it will allow them to stay warm while enjoying the snow at recess,” states Manson School District Nurse, Michelle Rogge.
