Lil' Kim Donates Toys To Philly Children For Christmas

Lil’ Kim is

getting into the holiday spirit despite being incarcerated and has teamed with

fellow Brooklyn native Zab Judah and clothing company Mitchell & Ness to donate

toys to under-privileged youth in Philadelphia.

This Thursday (Dec.

22), toys will be distributed to children 13 years-of-age and younger at the

Francis J. Myers Recreation Center on 58th and Kingsessing Avenues from 4pm-6pm.

Assisting with the coordination

and distribution of the toys will be Philadelphia Hip-Hop legend Carles "Charlie

Mack" Wilson, Kim's manager Hillary Weston, Eddie Magic, Meda Judah, the

Fight for Life Foundation, Mothers in Charge, Men United for a Better Philadelphia

and others.

Local radio station

100.3 The Beat will be on hand, encouraging listeners to also donate new toys,

clothing and books.

The toys will be

given on a first-come and fans are encouraged to come early.

In July of 2005,

Lil' Kim was sentenced to a year and a day in a Philadelphia federal prison

for lying to a federal grand jury about her knowledge of a 2001 shootout with

rivals outside of Hot 97 in New York in Feb. 2001.
