Stephen Curry donates MVP SUV to homeless nonprofit

By Alex Butler

OAKLAND, Calif., May 12 (UPI) -- Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry had another playoff assist Tuesday and it wasn't on the court.

After receiving the NBA MVP award for the second consecutive season, Curry also earned a Kia Sorrento SUV.

But with an $11.3 million salary and boatload of endorsement dollars, Curry likely doesn't need another vehicle. So he opted to donate the SUV to Covenant House, a nonprofit dedicated to helping the homeless youth in Oakland. Covenant House also provides shelter and services to 18 to 24 year old homeless youth.

"The Warriors have done a great job of reaching out to Covenant House all year long. This is kind of like the cherry on top of what basketball can bring to the community," Curry told KTVU. The new SUV will be used to transport food donated to the organization, bring people to and from medical appointments, job interviews, and more.

Bill Bedrossian, CEO of Covenant House, said that the current vehicles are aging fast.

"Well over 100,000 miles each," Bedrossian told KTVU. "We needed something new and this really is a blessing at this time for us."
