Detroit Piston guard Will Bynum gave to a worthy cause this holiday season.  The Chicago native donated Thanksgiving dinners to the women and children who live in Clara's House, a shelter for women who were victims of domestic violence.  

As part of his Ready and Pay It Forward nationwide initiative, Bynum also gave a $2,500 check to Clara's House to help pay for the electricity bill for the coming months, as the shelter had fallen behind in payments and was on the verge of having their power shut off.  

NBA Detroit Piston and Chicago native, Will Bynum, gave back in a huge way toward a Chicago south side shelter, Clara’s House, all around—helping those who live in the shelter as well as the owner who was hit with a disconnect electricity bill—a month ago.

Bynum made sure that nearly 50 women and children who reside in the shelter had a hot Thanksgiving dinner last night at Clara’s House with all the fixings. Will Bynum was present via Skype, due to a Wednesday night home game in Detroit, ironically against the Chicago Bulls, where he addressed the residents at the shelter about domestic violence, homelessness and his Reach and Pay it forward initiative for change for shelters nationwide.

Bynum encouraged the shelter residents to stay positive and have hope this holiday season. Bynum also gifted a $2,500 check toward the shelter’s electric bill to ensure that their lights stay on this holiday season.”

Heart warming stuff from both Will, and Clara Kirk, who has been running shelters for women for over 30 years.
