Former Memorial High basketball standout Quincy Pondexter plans on donating to the city of Fresno.
The New Orleans Pelicans guard and forward tweeted Monday saying he will donate to a Fresno area that needs it most.
So far, his followers suggested St. Helen’s Catholic School. The school hopes to raise $580,000 by May 31 in order to avoid closure.
Never miss a local story.
Garza tweeted that he’ll match Pondexter’s top two picks of places that need the money the most – as long as St. Helen’s is one of them.
It is not surprising Pondexter is looking to give back to his hometown. He has been hosting his yearly camp in Fresno and also held a turkey giveaway.
