Presented by Serenity Home Health Care
Following the January 2, 2010 Charlotte Bobcats vs. HEAT game, HEAT players Yakhouba Diawara, James Jones, and Chris Quinn visited the Community Partnership for Homeless facility to deliver food and serve meals to the more than 350 residents of the facility. Representatives from this year’s presenting partner, Serenity Home Health Care and Levy Cares, also helped in serving hot meals to the residents at Community Partnership for Homeless.
On this night, the players personally served meals to residents for close to an hour, bringing happiness to those less fortunate in South Florida. While providing the residents with their meals, the HEAT players took time to mingle and talk to the residents about their hopes and dreams for the coming year. After spending their time serving and meeting the residents, each player walked away that night with a sense of fulfillment and gratification.
The 2009-10 season marks the second year of the Re-HEAT Program, where unused food from all Miami HEAT home games is redistributed to local homeless assistance programs. Since the beginning for this season over 375 pounds of food have been distributed, feeding hundreds of needy individuals in the South Florida area. With several more months of home games remaining on the schedule, the HEAT look forward to continuing to feed the homeless and less fortunate members of the South Florida community.
