Kevin Durant, basketball’s hometown hero is putting his money where his mouth is.
Durant plays for the Golden State Warriors and decided to give $10 Million Dollars to Prince George’s County to help underprivileged kids prepare themselves to go to college.
Durant has donated his own money in a partnership with Prince George’s County Public Schools and College Track, an after school program that helps disadvantaged kids get into college.
The Durant Center will open in Seat Pleasant, the NBA star’s hometown, and will house the first of three College Track facilities planned for the D.C.-area.
The 10-year program gives underprivileged students the tools to get into college: tutoring, test preparation and resources on how to get financial aid and find the right college.
