Mavericks, DoorDash Partner To Help Support Local Restaurants
The Mavericks and DoorDash have "partnered together in an effort to support local restaurants" -- in the Dallas area as well nationwide -- as "part of DoorDash's #OpenForDelivery initiative," according to Doyle Rader of FORBES. DoorDash "donated $150,000 to the Mavs Foundation, which distributes the money it raises to nonprofit organizations that support foster care, victims of domestic abuse and families struggling with homelessness and hunger." The Mavs Foundation and the Mavericks have been "active in the community" since the NBA suspended its season, "donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to healthcare workers and nonprofits." The Mavs' partnership with DoorDash is "helping the organization build upon community efforts it already established." It also is a "logical extension of a program" that Owner Mark Cuban "implemented with the Mavericks and all his businesses." Cuban said, "We're doing things where we're loading up on some of our players and just sending (healthcare workers) unannounced, anonymous deliveries of tons of foods that they'll never ever be able to eat just so we can buy the food from the local restaurants and tip them" (FORBES.com, 3/30).
