(KMOV.com) - NBA star and St. Louis native Jayson Tatum has a life-changing new contract coming his way, but he is also focusing on helping people in his hometown.

The Boston Celtics' star annual "Daddy and Deuce Toy and Coat Drive" is now open. It is named after his son.

The drive this year will benefit two charities, one in St. Louis County, the other in St. Louis City, and lasts until December 16.
