Lowry Love: Philadelphia
The Lowry Love Foundation along with friends and family stopped by the Cecil B. Moore Recreation Center to give Kyle's childhood North Philly neighborhood a reason to be thankful this holiday season. Joined by local youth, who were willing to interrupt their Saturday morning basketball league to give a helping hand, the LLF was able to supply families with bags filled with dinner and dessert to ensure families had a reason to smile this Thanksgiving.
On August 27th, 2016, after coming off of a summer that saw Kyle help Team USA bring home a gold medal from Rio during the Summer Olympics, Kyle and Ayahna found time to host the Lowry Love Benefit Clinic. Thanks to contributions from the NBA Jr, Adidas, Body Armor, and many volunteers, several area kids were gifted the opportunity to hang out with Kyle for a morning of competitive drills and an afternoon of games and prizes. This free clinic was held at Philadelphia's Mastery Charter High School. Check out Slam Magazine's coverage of the event.
Beginning on November 30th, the Lowry Love Foundation embarked on a mission to spread holiday cheer to less fortunate Philadelphians as a part of the Lowry's Holiday Assist. What began with two toy drives culminated on Sunday, December 21st when 65 children and their families converged on St. Joseph's University for the first iteration of the Lowry's Holiday Assist Party. With the help of St. Joseph's Hawks and Villanova Wildcats fans we were able to collect and distribute hundreds of toys and we thank our supporters for making the event a success!

Sunday, November 23rd marked the date of the 2nd Annual Lowry Love Foundation Thanksgiving. Held at North Philadelphia's Connie Mack Park, the event was tremendously successful, as we were able to provide 250 in-need families with turkey baskets to ensure they would be able to enjoy a proper holiday meal.
