Magic’s Isaac, church aid­ing school­child­ren

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - Sports -

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.
