One year, they helped subsidize Cully Park in Northeast Portland; it’s Aberdale Pryor’s favorite park to take her children in day care.

“I didn’t know that but I’m glad, because I love the Blazers,” said Pryor. “It’s a pretty big park; there’s lots of space. You can walk around the trails and stuff. I like that. And you can see the kids.”

Blazers are additionally active with Portland Parks and Recreation. Every year, they host hoops clinics for young ball players.

Companions of Trees additionally rely on Blazers to score huge.
