Retired NBA and San Antonio Spurs superstar Tim Duncan Tuesday announced support for hungry families during the holiday season through the San Antonio Food Bank.

Duncan and his Black Jack Speed Shop team volunteered this past weekend with the Food Bank, distributing emergency food to local families in need and he doesn’t want the effort to end there. He was moved by the community’s support for his effort in the USVI but wants to ensure our local San Antonio families are not left behind during the holidays.

Tim announced a significant investment in the Food Bank to help ensure no families in need go without this holiday season and encouraging the community to meet his “2:1” Challenge.
