during the break in between the All-Star game and the second half Sixers owner Joshua Harris didnt just sit around. On Thursday he, along with his wife Marjorie, made a six figure donation to three Philadelphia Homeless shelters. The three shelters were Project HOME, Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, and Youth Service Inc.
This is a trend with the Sixers ownership group; Investing in the Philadelphia community. This donation was just one of many in their ongoing commitment to serving the city and making Philadelphia better. Right as the pandemic was hitting, and Philadelphia schools were going virtual Josh Harris donated 10,000 laptops to Philadelphia students. But more recently hee made a $10 million dollar investment in Philly’s Mosaic development partners in a bid to help the black-owned firm diversify the real estate workforce. And the most recent donation was a in late January when Josh Harris gave a six figure donation to the REFORM alliance.
Simply put, its an awesome gesture by the ownership group and a wonderful trend. There is no doubt it will help a lot of people in Philadelphia. The Sixers hit the court on Friday when they take on the Timberwolves on the road. It is expected to be James Harden Sixers debut.
