Pascal Siakam’s foundation made a donation to local charity Kickback, which supports underserved youth globally through the concept of sneakers.
Pascal Siakam is giving back to the city by way of sneakers.
The Raptors forward’s non-profit organization, The PS43 Foundation, has partnered with Toronto’s sneaker-based charity, Kickback, to provide funds to support future initiatives in 2022. The donation includes $25,000, as well as 30 pairs of sneakers.
“The Kickback Foundation is incredible for both its local and global outreach,” said Siakam in a statement. “Coming from humble beginnings, where sneakers were scarce to find or have in Africa, I could not be happier to support a cause that exemplifies ambition at a high level and helps make sport, art, and life skills accessible to underserved communities. This allows youth to feel confident; this is what life is about; helping each other in as many ways as possible, especially our youth.”
