Rutgers MBB center Clifford Omoruyi created a shoe drive to help struggling citizens in his home country of Nigeria. He received over 800 pairs of shoes for the needy, and spoke about it in a recent interview on B1G Network.

“The first thing I did was just post it on Instagram and Twitter,” said Omoruyi. “I wasn’t expecting more than like 500. When I posted on the first day there wasn’t much happening. Then I came back and I was like, geez people really watch my Twitter! They’re really supportive.”
