MINNESOTA’S DANIELLE ROBINSON RECEIVES JUNE WNBA CARES COMMUNITY ASSIST AWARD PRESENTED BY STATE FARM®
June 27, 2019
Minnesota Lynx’s guard Danielle Robinson has received the June WNBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by State Farm for providing outreach, resources and mentorship to homeless and underserved youth and families in her community throughout the month of June.
A year ago, Robinson connected with the Simpson House, a support and advocacy house for people experiencing homelessness, through blanket deliveries with the Lynx mentorship program, the Dream Team. Robinson has since expanded her relationship with the Simpson House, inviting teammates to serve dinner and interact with the community. Since the start of the 2019 season, Robinson has committed to serving meals once a month and inviting teammates including Seimone Augustus, Jessica Shepard, and Karima Christmas-Kelly.
