Joakim Noah takes 40 Chicago kids back-to-school shopping

Plenty of NBA players like to make a charitable impact in their communities, but Joakim Noah often goes above and beyond.

Earlier this week, Noah (via his partnership with adidas) took more than 40 kids from his Noah's Arc Foundation shopping at Kids Foot Locker to select new adidas shoes, shirts and sweatshirts to start off the school year.

Noah received the NBA Cares Community Assist Award in February of 2015, and it's clear that he's happy to continue doing his part to help during the offseason, as well.
