KEVIN DURANT GIVES CHRISTMAS PRESENTS TO OAKLAND ELIZABETH HOUSE
DECEMBER 20, 2017
At Oakland Elizabeth House (Oake House), a “cooperative living environment” for women and children who need help transitioning out of violent homes or homelessness, Durant played Santa for a second year in row — literally bringing Christmas to people who otherwise would not have one.
Some of the Oake House staff and families marveled at Durant’s height when he entered the room. While he shared a few words about what it meant for him to be there, and expressed a desire to continue his work with them in the future, helpers ushered in boxes and boxes of wrapped gifts.
At the end of the visit, Durant — holding a young child — posed for photos with the staff, mothers and children. His easy manner with the toddler makes it hard to resist thoughts about what a great father he will make one day.
Until that time, Durant’s efforts to improve the lives of others continue. Per statement from his publicist, Durant’s giving didn’t stop on his “Bay of Giving.” The Kevin Durant Charity Foundation (KDCF) will be providing additional support to these organizations — in the form of grants.
