Magic’s Isaac, church aiding schoolchildren
Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac said he is teaming up with a church to provide hot breakfasts and lunches to school kids age 18 and under on weekdays for the duration of the pandemic.
Isaac says he’s partnering with J.U.M.P. Ministries Global Church for that initiative. Isaac also said he’ll be helping families obtain boxes of nonperishable food items once a week, things like oatmeal and cereal and instant rice.
“There’s a great concern to those kids going hungry at this time. We don’t want that to happen,” Isaac said.
The breakfasts and lunches will be grab-andgo style, in line with social-distancing mandates. Isaac said a nurse will be on-site for the pickups as well. Isaac also said there’s a similar plan to help those living in extended-stay hotels.
Isaac was honored by the Magic last year for his commitment to community involvement.
