James Harden returns to Houston to host backpack giveaways and community events

Former Houston Rockets superstar James Harden is back in town for his JH-Town weekend.

Harden has hosted a number of community events annually with his foundation and returned to Cuney Homes in Third Ward this year.

Harden’s foundation gave away 600 backpacks and revealed plans to refurbish the Cuney Homes basketball court.

“I preach every year that’s what it’s all about,” Harden said. “I really enjoy … making an impact in these communities, communities that really don’t have much hope. Tonight was a great event with kids getting school supplies and backpacks, and as you look around and see you have a track that needs refurbishing.[We’ll] make it look the way it’s supposed to, with Adidas Basketball. I just want to give people hope, that’s what it’s all about.”
