Jeanette Pohlen of the Indiana Fever has been awarded the WNBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by State Farm for her charitable efforts and dedication to community initiatives throughout May. This marks the first time that Pohlen has received the honor.
“I am honored to receive this award because giving back to the community is so important to me,” said Pohlen. “As professional athletes, we have an amazing opportunity to use our platform to help people and make a difference.”
Every month, the WNBA chooses one player from across the league to receive the WNBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by State Farm. The award honors the WNBA player who best reflects the passion that the league and its players have for giving back to their communities.
