Just as we support them in pursuing their goals, they push us to think even bigger about the change we can create together.”

JuJu Watkins Puts Her NIL Deal To Use 

JuJu Watkins started 2024 on a positive note. She organized the “Good JuJu Holiday Giveback” in the Watts area of Los Angeles. 

The giveback was in collaboration with Nike and The Watts Labor Community Action Committee.

JuJu’s great-grandfather, Ted Watkins Sr, established The Watts Labor Community Action Committee in 1965 as an initiative to improve the lives of those who called the South Central Los Angeles neighborhood home.

The rising basketball star provided Nike shoes and accessories to high school basketball players from Crenshaw, Jordan, and Finish First Academy. 

In a now-deleted Instagram post, JuJu was heard saying, “That is what it’s all about. Just giving back to my community and inner city.”
