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. 

Here's a list of all of the locations: 

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. 

Thomas often brings NBA stars like Zach Lavine, Jamal Crawford, Iman Shumpert, Dejounte Murray, Marquese Chriss, Terrence Ross and Kyle Kuzma to make some noise in hometown.
