Carmelo Anthony Delivers Supplies to Sandy Victims

Carmelo Anthony has become more of a team player this season. Credit him with another assist.

The New York Knicks star headed Thursday to the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, where he lived as a child, to hand out supplies and food to those ravaged by superstorm Sandy. Working with several charities including his own, the Carmelo Anthony Foundation, the NBA All-Star helped deliver 500 boxes of supplies in a housing project on Columbia Avenue.

“I wanted to step up to the forefront,” Anthony said, via ESPN New York. “We all know what Sandy did to our city, especially to Brooklyn, and to Red Hook, with us being right here on the water. It hit us pretty bad, so I feel like I’m the face of Red Hook and I wanted to come back and give back to the place I grew up.”
