A Filipino food truck recently vandalized with racial slurs received a new paint job with help from Jordan Clarkson.

The Jazz guard, who's Filipino-American and holds dual citizenship, teamed up with Identity Graphx to restore the World Famous Yum Yum Food Truck in Layton, Utah. Layton mayor Joy Petro and other local community members also helped with the restoration, according to ABC4's Austin Facer.

Yum Yum's owner, Ben Pierce, told ABC4 that Clarkson's agent has been in touch with them to ask what else they need.

"They're just giving us too much," Pierce said of the local community and Clarkson. "It's already a lot of help. He's too giving."

Clarkson was named the Sixth Man of the Year for the 2020-21 season after averaging 18.4 points, four rebounds, and 2.5 assists in 68 games.
