Drummond was honored as the monthly NBA Cares Community Assist Winner for February.

According to NBA.com:

"During NBA All-Star in Toronto, Drummond served as an honorary coach during the fifth annual NBA Cares Special Olympics Unified® Basketball Game.  He also took part in NBA Cares All-Star Day of Service, helping repack 110,000 pounds of food donations benefiting more than 30,000 Canadians in need.  
Last month, Drummond and teammate Stanley Johnson surprised children at the Boys & Girls Club of Auburn Hills with a Jr. NBA basketball clinic.  He also ensured that special-needs organizations benefited from his contribution to the Pistons Charity Ticket program, which helps 250 local youth to attend Pistons games.
 
 "As part of a larger team initiative, Drummond supported the FlintNOW fund that works to provide clean water, health screenings and other relief services to the Flint community.  FlintNOW was created by Pistons owner Tom Gores to provide private sector support for immediate relief efforts during the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, and for long-term programs focused on economic development, nutrition and health care for residents of the city.
 
 “Making an impact in the community has been a goal of mine since entering the NBA,” said Drummond on nba.com.  “At an early age, my mother taught me to do whatever you can to help those in need.  I’ve tried to use her lessons to make a real difference in as many people’s lives as possible.”
