How LeBron James’ I Promise helps during coronavirus outbreak

LeBron James had plenty on his mind this week.

The Lakers’ star did not just worry about the NBA suspending its season for at least 30 days after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus. Or how a suspended or canceled season could affect James’ hope to deliver the Los Angeles Lakers their 17th NBA championship and their first in 10 years.

James also wondered how this would affect his I Promise School, a program that opened in 2018 as a partnership with his foundation and the Akron Public Schools to help at-risk youth with education and financial resources.

Gov. Mike DeWine (R-Ohio) announced Thursday that the state’s public and private schools would close for at least the next three weeks. So James spoke with Michele Campbell, the Executive Director of the LeBron James Family Foundation, about keeping the program’s Family Resource Center open so it could still assist students and families.
