With assistance from the Orlando Magic and Florida Blue, more kids are aware of the benefits of reading and storytelling. They partnered up to celebrate the Orange County Library Systems (OCLS) Summer Reading Program, which helps engage local students in literacy and learning. Magic Community Ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw and STUFF the Magic Mascot were also on hand to participate and encourage the children during Saturday’s event at Orlando’s downtown library. “We can go back in my time how my parents and my grandparents would tell you how important it is to pick up a book, pick up a newspaper and stay sharp in reading,” Anderson said. “That still applies to young people today. I encourage them to pick up a book, go to a library, sit down and read.”
It’s been 32 years now for Nick Anderson, trying to put distance between himself and the ghost of Benji Wilson. He can’t do it. Benji haunts him in his dreams. Benji still brings him to tears when he talks about him. And now, Benji’s face stares back at him when Anderson thinks about Jonathan Mills. Mills was another basketball star who recently became shooting victim No. 2,292 of Chicago’s random mayhem. Anderson was watching WGN in Chicago when he heard the news about Mills. Anderson called his older son, 26-year-old Josh. “What’s up with that kid who played ball?” Anderson asked Josh. “That’s my boy,” Josh said. “We play together all the time.”
Anderson, now 48, is fed up, too, at the lack of respect and value for human life. But he also has an answer on how to move forward: Save one life at a time. Start with yourself, and then channel all that energy to save your children. That’s what Anderson has done for his two sons and daughter. Josh called him the other night and told him, “You know all the stuff that you were telling me when I was growing up — don’t do this, don’t do that,” Josh told Anderson. “Dad, you were 99.99 percent right.” “You’re growing up on me,” Anderson said. “You got it.”
Clean the World, the leaders in global hygiene revolution, collects thousands of these essentials from hotels across the U.S. and then distributes them both domestically and internationally. On Thursday, July 28, the Orlando Magic assisted in the process. Community Ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw and other Magic volunteers helped sort, package and box thousands of products. “This is great to see all the volunteers giving their time and efforts to help distribute these products to the less fortunate,” Anderson said. “I’m just happy to be a part of it and to help others get things that we take for granted.”
The Orlando Magic announces their participation in the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Green Week 2014, which tipped off April 3 and runs through April 10. The Orlando Magic and partners OUC – The Reliable One and Owens Facility Service join together to celebrate Green Week 2014 through various green initiatives. Magic player Tobias Harris, Magic Community Ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw, Magic Dancers and volunteers from OUC and Owens will visit youth at Nap Ford Community School (325 N. Parramore Ave., Orlando, 32801) in the Parramore community on Tuesday, April 8 at 2 p.m. to plant fruits and vegetables and craft garden signs to enhance their garden. In addition, OUC will educate the youth on water conservation and efforts around the community to “go green.”
