NBA star player Kevin Durant gives back to the community in which molded him to be the man he is today. Kevin Durant was born and raised in Prince Georges County Maryland, therefore he donated $10 million for College Track, a program that helps students attend college. It was created to help students build academic skills, secure finical aid, and persist on the path to and through college. The program was founded California and has been up and running for 10 years. . The NBA star is also helping build the KD center named after himself that will be located in Seat Pleasant Maryland.“I want them to see the world,” Durant told the Washington Post. “I want them to see where people are from and see that there are things outside their world. I don’t know exactly or at what pace that they will get it, but there is a world outside that they need to see.” A parade was held for KD back in August of 2017, which celebrated him winning the championship. Not only does the community love KD, but he loves his community back.
