The statement continued, “Lowry and his wife, Ayahna Cornish-Lowry, are committed to improving the lives of disadvantaged people in Toronto and Philadelphia to help them enjoy a better quality of life. Together, they created the Lowry Love Foundation, a charity that gives back to the community.
According to the university’s website, the Lowry Love Foundation has provided more than 200 well-stocked Thanksgiving food baskets to Toronto families in need for the fifth year in a row. The Philadelphia native continues to embody what it means to be more than an athlete through his efforts on and off the court.
