MEMPHIS (AP) – Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph has won the NBA's community assist award for November for his work in the community.

The NBA announced the honor Wednesday.

Randolph says it's a blessing to be able to help someone else because he was a kid in need from a single-parent home growing up.

He handed out 900 food baskets at two local high schools before Thanksgiving along with tickets from the forward for an upcoming Grizzlies' game. He also donated 500 turkeys and 500 hams to be given away at a community center in Marion, Ind., in his hometown, and he gave 300 winter coats to students at a Memphis elementary school.

The honor also brings a $10,000 donation from Kia and the NBA to the Boys and Girls Club of America.
