NBA star helps more than 300 get ready for school



ROCKFORD – Auburn graduate Fred VanVleet, who has had a whirlwind summer after starring in the Toronto Raptors’ NBA championship season, gave away more than 300 backpacks full of school supplies Friday.

It was the second straight year that VanVleet helped kids get ready for school by donating FVV red-and-black packpacks. 

School starts Tuesday for Rockford Public Schools. You can read the Rockford Register Star’s coverage of the event by clicking here.
