Busy Couple of Weeks For Nets' Hometown Charities

Jordan Farmar, Anthony Morrow and Travis Outlaw are helping hometown charities over the next few weeks, with events ranging from raising funds for a childhood cancer center to a community day.

In Los Angeles, Farmar is hosting a "Celebration of Service" fund-raiser Sunday night for his own foundation and the Sheba Hospital childhood cancer center in Israel.  Among those on hand: L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Luke Walton and his agent, Arn Tellem. On Monday, his Hoop Farm camp for the underprivileged opens at UCLA's Pauley Pavillion.

In Charlotte, Morrow distributed 2,000 book bags with school supplies this weekend to the West Boulevard community where he spent his childhood. He was honored by the local YMCA as a role model.

In Starkville, MS, Outlaw and his family are planning "Travis Outlaw Day" on August 29 with community residents encouraged to participate in "three-legged, foot and wheel barrel races, free throw, hula hoop, jump rope, soccer kick, softball throw and football throw competitions and a three point shoot-out."
