LeBron James Thanks Firefighters With Taco Tuesday

The California wildfires are such a tragedy for the communities caught up in the disaster. While working in insurance, I would get calls from people who have lost their home to these wildfires. The conversations were absolutely heartbreaking. Since the damage is so widespread, I can only imagine the time and efforts firefighters put in daily to fight it. With such efforts to alleviate, small gestures like this make a huge difference.

LeBron James may have been among the 200,000 people who have evacuated their homes, but his spirit remains with his community. The Lakers superstar paid for a taco truck to drive out to the site of the Getty Fire. Firefighter crews working on the fire were treated to a free lunch. “Thank you, King James, for generously sending a taco truck to support our Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters, first responders and partner agencies working to fight the Getty Fire,” Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted. James says providing the crews with Taco Tuesday was the least he could do. “It’s an amazing job what they do and their commitment with what’s going on right now,” he says.

What’s the most charitable thing LeBron has done?
