We were so honored when we got the call from the Paul George Foundation for a very special cookie order. Today Thunder star forward Paul George kicked off his initiative to teach kids the importance of being active outdoors. Paul George learned to fish with his father and he wanted the chance to help kids, particularly inner city kids have the same experience.
At the event today, fourth graders from Stanley Hupfeld Academy got a chance to fish with Paul George and staff from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. Each kid also received a very special 1 Smart Cookie package with custom-iced cookies decorated as a fish and Paul George #13 basketball.
