Toronto Raptors’ Serge Ibaka Donates $100K to Help Toronto’s Homeless
Serge Ibaka is at it again.
Ibaka is doing just about everything imaginable during his quarantine to not only stay occupied, but to help as many people in the community as he can.
First, he debuted a spin off of his infamous How Hungry Are You? YouTube series. He hosted a talent show on his Instagram live, continued to update Raptor fans on his teammates by FaceTiming them from his home, and even donated his long scarves to the public health officials of the city of Toronto.

Ibaka has been just about everywhere without leaving the friendly confines of his condo and yet he continues to give back.
On Friday, it was announced that the Raptors big man has donated $100,000 to help Toronto’s homeless during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to prevent the spread, Ibaka is doing whatever he can to help those who are most vulnerable.
I think it’s only fair to have a Serge Ibaka night once play resumes!
We all have a role to play in bringing Toronto back to its feet.
We are proud to team up with partners to prepare and deliver up to 10,000 meals per day for front-line workers, their families and community agencies in this time of need.

Meanwhile, the MLSE is doing their part in the fight as well, turning the Scotiabank Arena into a massive kitchen in order to produce 10,000 meals a day for the city’s front-line health-care workers. The operation began at 2,800 meals a day and has continued to increase.
“One thing out here, you’re going to find a lot of people are very passionate about their work,” said MLSE Culinary Director Chris Zielinski. “They’re passionate about this cause. This crew has just been unreal at working through all the challenges, figuring how to make the process seamless and safe.”
An incredible gesture by a first class organization!
