Former NBA star Dwyane Wade and current Miami Heat star Udonis Haslem have joined forces to donate food to healthcare workers in Florida. Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem worked in collaboration with their Miami restaurant 800 Degrees to deliver packaged food to Mount Sinai Hospital in Aventura, Florida.
Wade and Haslem-owned 800 Degrees' official Instagram handle posted pictures of Dwyane Wade working with the team during the preparation of the variety of food items. The pictures accompanied with a caption that read, '800 Degrees Aventura partnered with Tiffany’s to make two deliveries yesterday to Mount Sinai Hospital in Aventura. We would like to thank all health professionals and hospital staff for their hard work during these difficult times.'
Known to be good friends outside of the NBA, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem entered the competitive restaurant business with 800 Degrees Miami back in September 2018. Since its debut, their venture has been quite a success with the restaurant specialising in wood-fired pizza and wide array of cuisines.
It further reported that Wade and Haslem are set to team up again to deliver food to other hospitals serving coronavirus patients around Florida.
A Miami Heat legend, Dwyane Wade has been a constant presence on social media during the lockdown period. He has repeatedly teamed up with Udonis Haslem on his Instagram Live sessions as Wade addressed several topics during the country-wide shutdown.
Last week, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem urged their supporters to join hands to fight coronavirus as a team. Wade said that he wanted the entire nation to come together and play as a team in order to navigate past the precarious coronavirus situation.
