Commanders player KJ Henry gives back to hometown before new NFL season

“It was all to benefit a nonprofit organization called Help Hope Live.”

KJ Henry – son of Help Hope Live client Keith Henry – returned to Clemmons, NC, to host a celebrity basketball game and youth football camp.

Entering his second year in the NFL with the Washington Commanders, KJ has been pledging his time, talent, and voice to supporting Help Hope Live following the mission’s impact on his own family.

“Honestly there were just so many that gave back to me when I was growing up…I want to give that feeling to some kids around here.”
