We were thrilled to host a special guest today: the Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant! He came to visit one of our transitional housing programs and hand out gifts. Huge thanks to our friends at Alaska Airlines for introducing us to KD and making this day happen!
Here is a video of the visit thanks to NBC Sports Bay Area:
Needless to say, both the young people and our staff were thrilled to meet this basketball superstar! He took a tour of the site, and after handing out gifts, graciously posed for dozens of photos. We so appreciate KD taking the time to visit Larkin Street and learn more about our work, as well as bringing so many awesome presents for the young people!
Special thanks again to Alaska Airlines for making this very special day possible! We so appreciate your support of our work to end youth homelessness!
