AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

The LeBron James Family Foundation is taking its commitment to its hometown to a whole new level this summer with a busy week of events planned for the first week of August.

Driven by LeBron's commitment to creating lasting change in Akron, local businesses are coming together to help LeBron, his Foundation, and Nicole Curtis from HGTV's Rehab Addict, to renovate the home and yard of one of its Wheels for Education students in LJFF's first ever PROMISE Project. Through this project, nine other WFE students will also have their yards re-landscaped with the help of local Akron businesses and volunteers.

The week will kick off with the yard renovations and will culminate with LeBron revealing the renovated home to the student and her family.

In the midst of the PROMISE Project, the LeBron James Family Foundation will also celebrate its WFE students and their families in the third annual I PROMISE Family Reunion. The event will welcome a brand new class of third graders with live performances, bikes, helmets and uniform shirts for the upcoming school year – which they will receive at the completion of the Foundation's required learning enrichment camp – and some words of encouragement from LeBron. The event also celebrates WFE's first class of third graders, the class of 2021, as they graduate to middle school and join LeBron's Akron I PROMISE network.

Following the presentation portion of the I PROMISE Family Reunion, the doors to InfoCision Stadium will be opened to the public for a special presentation from the City of Akron welcoming LeBron James home in a community-wide celebration.
