OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City Thunder superstar is asking for help to provide a Christmas for children in need.

Kevin Durant and his family are hosting the second annual Durant Family Christmas Toy Drive.

“I’m excited for an even bigger event this year,” said Tony Durant, Kevin’s older brother and chairman of the toy drive. “We gave away around 2,000 toys last year, and I want to do even more this year.”

Durant says he hopes to give 5,000 children a Christmas this year.

Before that can happen, the Durant family says they are seeking donations of toys from the public.

Gifts should average in price from $10 to $20 and can be for children from birth to 16-years-old.

The deadline for donations is Saturday, Dec. 20.

The presents will be given to children and families on Dec. 22 at the Cox Pavilion at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds.

To find out where you can donate, visit the toy drive’s website.
