2009 NBA Cares All-Star Day: Because Real Athletes Care

The NBA Cares is the National Basketball Association's global outreach program that addresses essential social issues not only in the United States, but throughout the world as well. Through the NBA Cares program, the league, along with its various teams and players, raise and contribute $100 Million for charity, give more than a million hours worth of hands-on voluntary services to different communities, and also make hundreds of places where children and families can learn, play and live as well. Since the program's official launching in October 18, 2005, it has already raised more than $97 million for charity, it has given more than 800,000 hours of voluntary community service, and it has made more than 350 places for children and families worldwide. Using the popular image of its players and teams, NBA Cares' dedication lies in the presentation of initiative and leadership in one's responsibility for his/her society.

The 2009 NBA Cares All-Star Day of Service, which will be held on the 13th of February, 2009, will be hosted by the “Rebuilding Together Valley of the Sun”, which is part of the “Rebuilding Together”, a large, non-profit organization in the U.S. that aims to promote affordable homeownership and restore different neighborhoods in the country. This event will be joined by NBA All-Stars and other volunteers for the program, and they will assist in restoring the Central City South neighborhood. These volunteers will be painting and re-establishing five homes occupying 2 blocks along Pima Street. The neighborhood is located in Phoenix, Arizona, where the 2009 NBA All-Star Game will be held on the 15th of February.
