Trae the Truth Plays Santa for Kids at “Winter Wonderland”

Rising Houston rapper Trae the Truth will join local councilman Jarvis Johnson this Thursday (December 18) for the 3rd

annual “Winter Wonderland,” a Christmas party for students in Houston’s

District B that have shown the most improved grades this year.Trae will don Santa the Claus garb to greet arriving kids and hand out toys supplied by Councilman Peter Brown.

The

event marks Trae’s second community outreach event in the last two

months. In November, the rapper participated in “Tackle Hunger,” a

Thanksgiving food drive done in partnership with the Amobi Okoye

Foundation.

This

year’s “Winter Wonderland” is being held at Discovery Green Park in

downtown Houston. In addition to Trae’s Santa role, the kids will be

treated to ice-skating, horse trolley rides, and a snowman-making

contest. The children will be comprised of 25 students from 20

different schools throughout District B who have demonstrated the most

significant improvement with their grades.

Councilman

Jarvis Johnson hopes by having such a high-profile event, more kids

will be motivated to focus on their studies in the coming year.

“By

rewarding the academic success of the most improved students, it is my

expectation that other students will strive harder next year to achieve

the same success,” Johnson told AllHipHop.com.

“Winter

Wonderland” will commence from 10AM-1PM tomorrow. Local Houston media

and citizens are encouraged to attend and support the event.
