The holidays are a season of celebration and giving, yet many will go wanting as families struggle to make ends meet in our tough economic times. A trip to the store this season can be a daunting task for those facing the pressures of being unable to provide for their families.
The Godfather of Soul, James Brown, began ensuring that children in the two-state area didn’t go without holiday gifts when he began the Annual James Brown Toy Giveaway. The 22nd annual event will be held Thursday, December 20, at 9 a.m. at The James Brown Arena. Parents and their children can enjoy an array of fun activities as well as receive toys that are age and gender appropriate.
Those wishing to help the Brown Family Children’s Foundation in this endeavor can send donations to P.O. Box 652, Clearwater, S.C., 29822. Donations also can be dropped off at CH Terrell Academy/JAMP at 817 12th St., Augusta, or First Bank of Georgia, 1580 Walton Way.
