With his team, they travel around the capital region to help people in need. “I’m doing this for my heart because I know it’s going to plant a seed, and it’s going to really put these kids on the right path, and I feel like that’s what Troy, Albany and Schenectady really have. need,” Wilkins said.

And the kids were really grateful, one was smiling ear to ear over his brand new shoes.
