Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin, who grew up near and played at the University of Oklahoma, joined forces with Project Smile Moore to host an event on Thursday night to help those communities affected by the devastating tornadoes that hit Oklahoma.

The event will be held at Oklahoma’s Lloyd Center practice courts from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m., and is free to the public.

Griffin and his brother, former Phoenix Suns forward Taylor Griffin, will be distributing supplies for those families in need. It’s all part of the Griffin Family Relief Fund that Griffin wants to use as part of a long-term plan to help the community.
