PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Even though the Portland Trail Blazers are in “the bubble” in Orlando, the team is still finding ways to help the local community — such as paying for your groceries!
The NBA team and Fred Meyer have joined forces for the “Trail Blazers Paid My Bill” program — providing a $100 gift card to each shopper as they enter the store.
“A hundred dollars can go a long long ways,” one lucky shopper said. “This is going to help me out immensely.”
The Trail Blazers handed out 200 of those $100 gift cards to shoppers throughout Tuesday morning.
The Blazers take on the Houston Rockets Tuesday night at 6 p.m.
