Dwight Howard is coming to help those in Alabama

Dwight HowardOne of the nicknames frequently used for Dwight Howard, the Orlando Magic‘s perennial All-Star center, is Superman.

Later this week, there’s no doubt residents in the state of Alabama won’t hesitate to use that nickname for him – for a completely different reason.

Howard’s non-profit organization, D12 Foundation, announced plans yesterday to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Birmingham to rebuild 10 homes damaged or destroyed as a result of the April 27 tornadoes. He’ll be in town tomorrow, June 2, to assist with that project. Folks interested in helping out can fill out this volunteer packet,¬†fax it to (407)896-1702, and wait for the representative from D12 to call you back.

He also plans to visit Tuscaloosa where he’ll visit with various groups and present a donation from the foundation to the Tuscaloosa Disaster Relief Fund.
