The Minnesota Timberwolves haven’t forgotten the true meaning of Christmas.

That’s because the entire team treated over a dozen children to a holiday shopping spree at the Roseville Target in Minnesota on Tuesday. In total, 14 children were included in the shopping spree, and each child currently has or very recently had a parent serving in the military overseas.

The Timberwolves‘ community outreach project was done in partnership with the United Heroes League, which seeks to alleviate financial burden on military families during and after deployment. United Heroes League primarily concentrates on low-income military children and workers to ensure they have equal access to sports as their civilian classmates.


Children were allowed to pick out TVs, games and other electronics, as well as warmer clothing for the cold winter ahead.

Talk about an awesome cause.
