From his hometown of Tacoma, to Seattle, where his No. 2 jersey hangs in the rafters at University of Washington's Alaska Airlines Arena, Washington holds a special place in Isaiah Thomas' heart.
It's the community that has had the biggest impact on Thomas' life and he wants to help his old stomping grounds in a time of need.
According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports, Thomas will donate food from Seattle-based restaurant chain, Pagliacci's pizza, from April 7 to April 14 to the main locations at UW Medical Center that have been impacted by COVID-19.

This isn't the first time Thomas has given back to the Seattle-area.
The NBA free agent, who has played for the Kings, Suns, Celtics, Cavs, Lakers, Nuggets and Wizards, founded the Zeke-End basketball tournament back in 2014 to give fans in Seattle a fresh glimpse of the NBA.
