San Antonio Spurs icon Tim Duncan is personally helping college students, in his native U.S. Virgin Islands, unite with their families during the coronavirus pandemic by paying for their airfare to wherever home may be. Duncan and his partners are asking students to be certain they have not contracted COVID-19 before coming in contact with their families.
The Virgin Islands Consortium and Rashidi Clenance, Duncan’s longtime friend confirm that he is teaming up with Silver-Seaborne Airways to pay for a one-way ticket for college students in or from the islands so they can be with their families during uncertain times without bearing another financial burden.
This effort is in partnership with Delta, JetBlue and American Airlines. The students must be ready to travel at any time during the next business day after submitting their application and will fly on any of the three partnered airlines, according to the post.
