NBA superstar Trae Young is starting off 2020 by giving back to his new city in a HUGE way … by helping cancel out more than $1 MILLION in medical debts for people in Atlanta.
The 21-year-old pro teamed up with a nonprofit called RIP Medical … which, according to the site, uses donations to buy large bundles of medical debt and then forgive that debt with no tax consequences to donors or recipients.
Young’s foundation recently donated $10,000 … which translates to $1,059,186.39 in medical debt getting erased, helping 570 people in need.
“The City of Atlanta has welcomed me with open arms,” Young said, according to WSB-TV in ATL.
“Giving back to this community is extremely important to me. I hope these families can find a bit of relief knowing that their bills have been taken care of as we enter the New Year.”
