Another reason to love Dirk Nowitzki and Mark Cuban? They’re providing 350 families with food boxes due to COVID-19.

The Dirk Nowitzki Foundation, the Mark Cuban Foundation, the Heroes Foundation and the North Texas Food Bank teamed up to host “Center Table Fall Harvest” on Thursday, Oct. 22, from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Mark Cuban Heroes Basketball Center.

The drive-through event will offer food boxes for 350 families, and Pappas Restaurants will provide vouchers for a free turkey for each family. The event is open to people who reside in the Center’s surrounding neighborhoods.

Food boxes and turkey vouchers are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis to 350 families. Pre-registration is not required. Volunteers and staff from the Mark Cuban Heroes Basketball Center will wear masks and gloves and will practice social distancing.

The event will kick off a monthly series throughout November and December.

“We may never know everything our families are facing, but we know we must do all we can to support one another,” Trina Terrell-Andrews, CEO of the Mark Cuban Heroes Basketball Center, said in a press release. “We hope Center Table Fall Harvest will help bring some joy to our neighboring families during these very difficult times.”
