Basketball Legends Join Sherwin-Williams Employees for Food Distribution During NBA All-Star Weekend

Sherwin-Williams team members partnered with the National Basketball Retired Players Association® (NBRPA), Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) and the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to serve local families during the 2022 NBA All-Star Weekend in Cleveland. The Legends Care® Drive-Through Food Distribution event at CMSD’s East Professional Center welcomed families with children attending CMSD schools and provided them with boxes filled with shelf-stable food items and fresh produce.


Our employees worked alongside NBA and WNBA Legends providing an off-the-court assist in distributing 500 food boxes to CMSD scholars and their families. “It was cold, but our hearts were warm,” said Maria L. Spangler, Sherwin-Williams Director of Community Engagement. “What a wonderful day to be reminded of how great our city and our Sherwin-Williams family truly are.”


“It is extremely important that the NBRPA and our Legends give back to families in each NBA All-Star Game host city through our Legends Care programs,” said Scott Rochelle, NBRPA President and CEO. “We knew that we wanted to make an impact in the fight against hunger, so we assembled a powerful team of partners who are leaders in this space and are advocating for children and families every single day.”


The Greater Cleveland Food Bank seeks to bridge the meal gap, ensuring that Cleveland area residents have the food they need every day, and they were happy to provide a truckload of food items for the Legends Care Drive-Through Food Distribution. “We are proud to be a part of this effort,” said Kristin Warzocha, President and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. “We’re so honored to be included in this NBA Legends Care event, where families were able to receive the nutritious food needed to help them in these continued challenging times.”
