The Atlanta Hawks awarded Kyle Korver the Jason Collier Memorial Trophy which is given out each season to a player for his dedication to community service.

The Atlanta Hawks awarded Kyle Korver the Jason Collier memorial trophy Wednesday night for his dedication to community service off the court.

The Hawks created the trophy in memory of Jason Collier who died suddenly in 2005. It is presented annually to the player who best exemplifies the characteristics Collier displayed off the court as a community ambassador.

Korver has been a hit on the court for the Hawks but has been a huge positive in the community as well. He is involved in a number of off the court activities through the Kyle Korver Foundation and is the owner operator of Seer Outfitters which is a clothing brand that donates 100 percent of its profits to support organizations and causes throughout the country.

Korver's foundation successfully conducted a "March Madness" fundraiser where they collected over $20,000 to build wheelchair ramps for 10 families. Earlier this season he held a sock drive in partnership with the Atlanta Mission and collected over 4,000 pairs of socks to the homeless shelter.

Past winners of the Jason Collier Memorial Trophy include Josh Childress (2005-06 and 2006-07), Marvin Williams (2007-08 and 2010-11), Al Horford (2008-09), Josh Smith (2009-10), Zaza Pachulia (2010-11) and Devin Harris (2012-13).
