Utah Jazz Guard George Hill Spontaneously Bought Food for the Homeless in Salt Lake City


After five seasons with the Indiana Pacers, guard George Hill was traded to the Utah Jazz in July and he’s already making an impact on the community.

Just a few days ago, George Hill was on a walk in the Salt Lake City community when he spotted a group of homeless men, women and children. He went out of his way to buy them all some food and listen to their stories as they ate.

CBS Sports notes that Utah has worked to reduce homelessness “by a striking 91 percent”.

Hill took to Instagram and told his story:


Impacting Lives is Something I Strive To Do Everyday. Whether Its A Smile, Hug, Conversation, Picture Or Simply Spreading The Love…. Well As I Was Walking Last Night With My Family In My New City (Salt Lake City). I Noticed A Large Group Of Men, Women And Even Children. But The Group I Noticed Maybe Had A Blanket, A Cart Filled With Things, Dirty Clothes, And Wasn’t Sure When Their Last Meal Was… So Why Not Make That My One Good Deed Of The Day And Impact A Couple Lives. So Went To Wendys And Grabbed A Bunch Of Cheese Burgers, Fries Bought Some Bottled Waters And Walked Down Rio Grande Till We Reached A Park Up The Street And Passed Out Hot Meals And Mingled. Had A Great Time Listening To Some Of Their Stories… So I Challenge Everyone To Spread The Love And Do A Good Deed Once A Day. DM Me Some Of Your Good Deeds And I Will Start Posting Some Of Your Impactful Stories. Together We Can Spread The Love… #GoodDeeds #ImpactingLives #SpreadTheLove
