Getting away from video games for a moment, 2K has announced the launch of 2K Foundations. The new program was created to support underserved communities across the nation by refurbishing basketball courts in neighborhoods that need them the most. The court refurbishments will feature environmentally-safe upgrades and offer resources to create local basketball tournaments and other positive endeavors that promote diversity, sportsmanship, learning and the positive power of community.
The neighborhoods include Cincinnati, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Chicago and Cleveland within its first year. 2K Foundations will also provide essential technology upgrades in local community centers that will enable STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education programming for the youth, with the support of local advocacy groups and communities.
Microsoft will also partner with 2K and lend their support, by outfitting Xbox One S gaming stations and other equipment in each of the locations.
