Damian Lillard helps hand out school supplies

Posted: Updated:

Portland Trailblazers star Damian Lillard was getting ready for back to school Wednesday, but it wasn't for himself. 

He was out with Schoolhouse Supplies, a nonprofit that helps local kids. Schoolhouse provides students and teachers each year with the supplies needed to succeed.

Lillard said he loves coming out each year and seeing those shining faces eager to learn.

"A year might go by and they might forget that they saw me the last time and they get excited all over again," he said. "I get excited to be a part of something -- and they will never know but it means something to me to see their reaction and to see they appreciate me being here and to see that the parents also appreciate it."

Schoolhouse will be stopping by two more Portland schools handing out supplies such as backpacks and other basic needs.
