Zach Randolph Donates $20K To Keep Utilities Running For 100 Memphis Families (Video)
Before the 2009-2010 season, Zach Randolph was known as a trouble maker throughout the league. Then he signed with the Memphis Grizzlies and changed his career and attitude around. Randolph has been the face of the franchise for the past seven years on the court, but it’s what he does off it that has people talking.
The 35-year-old forward recently donated $20,000 to keep the utilities on for at-risk families in the area:

“Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph announced today a $20,000 contribution to MIFA (Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association) to keep utilities connected for over 100 Memphis-area families.
Randolph’s donation will go directly to the MIFA Emergency Services Plus-1 program. Plus-1 is a program administered by MIFA to pay utility services for people in need.
This is Randolph’s seventh year contributing to MIFA and MLGW. His donation will be used to cover the cost of utility payments for more than 100 households on the verge of service disruption in the Memphis-area.”
