The award recognizes his contributions to his community through the Chris Paul foundation, which was founded by the
NBA Cares ambassador Bob Lanier and a Kaiser Permanente representative will present Paul with the
Paul's foundation recently helped open a newly refurbished Boys & Girls Club in Watts and also hosted the fourth annual Prom Dress Giveaway, in which 100 L.A.-area high school girls from a variety of community programs selected new and vintage gowns, shoes, jewelry and accessories.
"I learned at an early age that you can make a major difference in someone's life by supporting your community," Paul said in a statement. "Community service is not something I have to do; it's something I want to do. While donating money is important, it is also important to be visible in the community and sharing time with people so they can know you care."
