The Zero Two Hero Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which helps promote the safety and well being of children by raising funds to support organizations that aid in the preservation of families through foster care, adoption, and child welfare services, as well as helping the homeless.
Who are we?
The Zero Two Hero Foundation was established in 2005 by Gilbert Arenas. It was formed because Gilbert recognizes as we all do that all children are special and have unique talents-- even those children who, like Gilbert did, are growing up in challenging situations. LEARN MORE
The 7th annual Gilbert's Christmas Dream Thursday, December 2 at Toys"R"Us in Rockville kicked off the Washington Wizards annual 12 days of Holiday Cheer program. All-Star guard Gilbert Arenas took five lucky foster children from the metropolitan Washington region to Toys"R"Us and gave them the "shopportunity" of a lifetime. Each child was able to select presents of their choice compliments of Arenas and his Zero Two Hero foundation.

*Abe’s Table was one of Abe Pollin’s favorite projects, created in an effort to feed the homeless in Washington, D.C
"With Abe Pollin's passing, the NBA family has lost its most revered member, whose stewardship of the Wizards franchise, together with his wife Irene, has been a study in unparalleled dedication to the city of Washington. During his illness he fought with a determination and valor that will remain an inspiration to all. We extend our deepest sympathies to Irene and his two sons, to whom he was so very devoted, and to the entire Pollin family."
-- NBA Commissioner, David Stern
