Tim Duncan is continuing to be the GOAT when it comes to relief efforts in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

He sprang to action as soon as it was safe to fly back to his homeland, rallied help from San Antonians and basketball lovers all over the country to help with donations and is still coming through with relief efforts after Hurricane Irma's destruction in early September.

Duncan teamed up with every Texan's favorite grocery store (the OG H-E-B) and the San Antonio Food Bank to deliver 400,000 pounds of food to those in need on the islands.



Timmy has even upped his contribution after more than 20,000 donors raised more than $2.6 million. Donations continue to pour in, with Duncan now matching $1 million to go toward the $5 million. You can donate here.
