Grammy Award winner Jennifer Hudson held a school supplies giveaway earlier this week for low-income children back in her hometown, Chicago.
Jennifer along with her sister, Julia King gathered, enough supplies for nearly 5,000 children which includes: paper, pencils, pens, calculators, and USB drives.
Wednesday August 14th marked the third year that the singer/actress and her sister hosted the “back to school” event in honor of Jennifer’s slain nephew and Julia’s son, Julian.
[Julian] was so into education, which is part of why [Julia and I] chose to give back in this way.
Every year the event, “Hatch Day,” is held on Julian’s birthday who would’ve been 12 years old this year. The pair also host an event for the Holidays where they give away toys to children for Christmas.
