John Wall’s community service has been well documented, but he went one step further to make one family’s Christmas special this holiday season.

After hearing that the Fields family of Washington DC was struggling to make ends meet after the mother was diagnosed with cancer and the father lost his job, Wall surprised them with $1,000 worth of groceries, tickets to a Wizards game, AND tuition to the twins’ private school.

“I lost my dad at the age of nine to cancer, so I know how it is to deal with a parent battling and trying to survive,” Wall said. “Hearing their mom was going through that, I wanted to help.”

Wall’s good deed was documented on “Good Morning America” this morning:

Wall shared the surprise at a private screening of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which he hosted for 200 underprivileged children earlier this month. One of the film’s stars, Kevin Hart, even gave the crowd a shoutout:

Between this and giving each of his teammates a Rolex watch, John Wall is the real Santa this season. Nobody tell Colin Cowherd.

You can see Wall, Jodie Meeks, and the Wizards play the Boston Celtics at 5:30 p.m. on ABC.
