Players from the Long Island Nets pitched in at the Helping Hands Rescue Mission in Huntington last week.
The players spent an afternoon preparing and distributing bags of food and toiletries for local families in need.
The effort was part of the Long Island Nets opening week community initiatives. The team, which is the NBA G League affiliate of the Brooklyn Nets, opened its season at the Nassau Coliseum on Friday, Nov. 10 with a 123-120 win over Raptors 905.
Helping Hands Rescue Mission has served the Long Island community for more than 50 years and seeks to improve the lives of Long Island families by providing basic needs like clothing, food and more.
