On Wednesday, December 22, Orlando Magic players Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, J.J. Redick, Ryan Anderson and Brandon Bass “decked the halls” of Central Florida providing youth and families with gift cards for shopping sprees, coats, toys and holiday cheer. The day began with Howard distributing gift cards to 100 kids from Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Florida for a holiday shopping spree with the All-Star center at Toys “R” Us. Howard then provided 100 children from Community Concept Services, Inc. (CCSI) with the opportunity to select a new coat, courtesy of Burlington Coat Factory. Following that, Nelson distributed gifts to two local families.

Nelson, along with the help of his family, went shopping for the gifts on December 15 from wish lists the children provided.
