RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Forest Hill Target store welcomed the VCU Rams men’s basketball team and 50 children in the 6th grade or younger from varying local non-profits to a day of Christmas shopping.
The annual “Show with the Rams” brings players and kids together to help spread holiday cheer by providing children with a $100 budget to buy whatever they wanted in the store, which mainly consisted of toys, dolls, and other Christmas goodies.
Some bought clothes, whatever they bought, it was all for a good cause that Rams’ head coach Will Wade is a great reminder of what his team has to be thankful for.
“I think it’s great for our guys,” says Wade. “helps keeps things in perspective that other folks are needy as well and it’s a good way to remember that.”
On the court, the Rams travel to Atlanta, Ga. Tuesday to face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at 9:00 p.m.
