LeBron James is undoubtedly one of the most philanthropic personalities out there. Back in 2018, the Lakers star opened a school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio to give better education to kids in low-income neighborhoods. His “I Promise” school has managed to be a huge success, so it appears he’s looking to expand the help to more people form different age groups.
In a recent interview with USA TODAY Sports, James announced a brand new initiative called the “I Promise” village to provide housing for families who can’t make ends meet. “Initially, our work was focused on helping these kids earn an education. But we’ve found that it is impossible to help them learn if they are struggling to survive, if they are hungry, if they have no heat in the freezing winter, if they live in fear for their safety,” he said.
“We want this place to be their home where they feel safe, supported, and loved, knowing we are right there with them every step of the way as they get back on their feet,” James added.
