SAN ANTONIO – Spurs legend David Robinson continued his legacy of helping others and the community Friday morning by donating 100 pizzas to the front line workers at Audie L. Murphy Memorial Veterans Hospital in San Antonio. The two-time NBA Champion took time to sign each box and pose for pictures with health care workers who have helped keep us and our veterans safe.
“These folks are brave enough to come to work everyday and put themselves at risk for us,“ Robinson said. “To be able to come here and do something as simple as share pizzas to encourage them and let them know how much we appreciate them.”
Robinson, who graduated from the Naval Academy and served in the Navy before reporting to the Spurs in 1989, made the donation through Admiral Capital Group and Pizza vs. Pandemic. He admitted this pandemic has been difficult for everyone, but is still doing his part to help people across the nation.
“We’re trying to provide food for families,” Robinson said. “We’ve done it with some of the tenants to figure out how we are going to get through some of these times having to work with rents. We don’t know how long we have to put our selves at risk or how long we have to wear these masks. Everything we can do to encourage folks who are doing all the hard work is really critical.”
Additionally, Robinson supported efforts to bring back the NBA this summer. “I’m glad there is a lot of sports trying to figure it out. As long as we can keep people safe and provide that good quality entertainment, I think it’s good for all of us.”
