VCU gives back with 2nd annual Shop with the Rams

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- Shaka Smart and his VCU men's basketball team have proven that they can win on the court, but Sunday found the Rams making sure that there are winners in the community as well.

Smart and his team holding the 2nd annual Shop with the Rams event at Target on West Broad Street in Richmond.  25 area kids from the West End Boys and Girls Club earned a chance to shop with their favorite VCU players and coaches.  Target provided $100 gift cards for each shopper, and each was paired up with a member of the Rams.  The event lasted for about two hours.

This marks the second straight year for this event, and Smart and his players say that it's rewarding to give back to the community in this way.
