OKLAHOMA CITY – When he’s not busy winning games with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kevin Durant spends his time giving back to the community.

Kevin and his brother, Anthony, teamed up with People’s Church to make sure Oklahoma children have a gift under the tree this Christmas.

Hundreds of families waited in line Wednesday to get a Christmas present from KD.

‘This is my favorite time of the year,” Durant said. “And to give back to the community is really what I enjoy to do.”

Some of the toy were donated, but the Durant brothers bought the majority of them.

For most families, the generosity helps ease some of the holiday stress.

Misty Milsap said, “Being a single parent, it’s kinda hard during Christmas time and I’m excited because [my kids] wanted to meet Kevin Durant and they got to meet him today.”

The kids came away with gifts, autographs and an unforgettable experience.

Families also made sure to express how grateful they are for the help.

Durant said, “I got a kiss from a grandma today who was very excited to, you know, get a gift for her grandson, so as long as everyone’s happy I feel good.”

When asked how he found time to do things like this, Durant said, “You find time for the things you want to find time for.”
