Phoenix Suns star T.J. Warren gives back to his Durham charter school by donating hundreds of books

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 there was a Book Giveaway Pep Rally held in which The TJ Warren Foundation partnered with FirstBook to provide over 500+ books to the kids at Research Triangle Charter Academy in Durham NC. RTCA has over 700 students enrolled.


Last year books were donated to 2 local elementary schools in Raleigh.


Being born in Durham, NC and it has always been so important for me to give back to the community that gave me so much. That’s why I’ve been working for the last few years to give back to kids in need in my home town. I know that education offers kids a path out of poverty. YOU can make a difference in the life of a child in need by connecting with a great organization I work with called First Book. First Book provides millions of books and resources each year to kids in need to help them be successful in school and in life. I hope you’ll join us. Visit to learn more and get involved.
