Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays: The Giving Goes Down In New York & New Jersey

Whatever you may think about the Christmas season…it is a time when people tend to agree is a time for increased kindness, acts of giving and people to help others. Preserve Our Legacy, Inc. jumped into a partnership with The City of Newark, Newark Department of Health & Community Wellness, Newark Housing Authority and several notables to give to children in need of toys for Christmas. The event took place in New Jersey and New York with appearances by AllHipHop’s Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur, rap artist Freeway, rapper Prince AK, actor JD Williams, Newark’s honorable mayor Ras J. Baraka, artist Miss NaNa and several dignitaries. Here are some of the pictures from the event. Keep the spirit of giving back going…
