Cunningham, a native of Columbus, Miss., volunteers his time with the "Kids With Character" Basketball Camp at Columbus High School, and he also works with ManHood Camp, which is designed for young boys to teach them how to grow up and be real men with character and standards.
He is also an active participant with the the Lace-Up Program, a club designed for middle school kids that is centered toward academics in the summer and exposing them to different educational opportunities as well as enrichment activities.
In addition, he is also active in Big Brother and serves as a volunteer and chaperon at various church camps and programs.
"It's just something I enjoy," he said. "The community has given me so much, and I feel obligated to give back. It's a calling."
