After hearing of the COVID-19 outbreak in the Virgin Islands prison system, Tim Duncan sent 10,800 masks to the territory for distribution. The donation was facilitated by Sheldon and Sherwin Robinson, formerly of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club, ViVid Streaming and Seaborne Airlines. A smaller donation will be made to the Department of Sports, Parks and Recreation later this week.
