Please join us on Tuesday, Dec. 20 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Storefront Academy Charter School’s South Bronx campus, located at 609 Jackson Ave. for a toy drive hosted by multiple celebrities.

In attendance will be Evan Neal, an offensive tackle for the New York Giants NFL team who was selected 7th overall by the team in the 2022 draft. Also at the drive will be New York County Acting Supreme Court Justice J. Machelle Sweeting, “Orange is the New Black” actor Jimmy Gary Jr., up-and-coming R&B and hip hop artist Lashon Da Golden Child, and owner of SGN Management Shelia Gary Neal.

The group is proving love for their native borough, the Bronx.

This time of year can come with anxiety and pressure for parents who are already doing everything they can to make ends meet. This is their way to be a part of a community that makes our students’ holiday season brighter.
