Andre Drummond keeps giving back to his community

We're reminded again about what a good person Andre Drummond is.

Drummond will be at the Middlesex YMCA in Middletown on Friday, Aug. 18. The first 300 children in attendance will receive a backpack with school supplies, while the first 100 kids will receive an autographed basketball. The event, which will run from 6-8 p.m., is open to the public.

Drummond, who will be accompanied by longtime friend from Middletown Mike Boornazian, has previously donated $10,000 to the Middlesex Y. That money funded Andre’s Allstars, a program open to youth over the age of 12 which currently provides support to over 30 participants. All participants receive a complimentary membership and academic support with tutoring sessions on Tuesday evenings, during the school year, through a partnership with Wesleyan University Volunteer Tutors.

The funding has also provided an opportunity for additional programming such as basketball skill clinics and S.T.O.R.M.Y Nights (Spend Time Out Relaxing at the Middlesex Y), a program designed to bring middle school kids into the Y for supervised activities on select Fridays. Many Andre's Allstars scholarship recipients have also participated in this summer's youth basketball league.

“We’re very grateful for the opportunity Andre has created for youth in this community," said Middlesex YMCA teen coordinator Craig Chivers. "So many of the Andre’s Allstars Scholarship recipients really need a safe space to get away and focus their energy. It’s such an impressionable age, so it’s important that we continue to provide a positive outlet. I think we’re beginning to truly develop future leaders and establishing a sense of community for the youth here at the Middlesex Y."

Drummond also was recently named a global ambassador for the Special Olympics.
