A handful of celebrities and Giants football players will be at Sneaker Room on Central Avenue this Saturday (and since this Saturday is small business Saturday these are the kinds of stores to shop at as well) from 10am to 8pm to help collect "toys, board games and stuffed animals that will be distributed at shelters in Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and New Jersey to kids in need."
Celebrities who will be stopping by throughout the day include New York Giants Victor Cruz and Justin Tuck, hip hop legend Jadakiss, producer and MC Jim Jones of the Diplomats, TV and radio personality DJ Envy of HOT 97, and DJ Clue, according to a press release.
A lot of these kids had to leave their houses fast fast fast and didn't have time to bring toys or anything to play with to their shelters. This toy drive will help alleviate that. We're going to give the famous Jersey City Desk last word to Sneaker Room owner Suraj Kaufman:
"Shelters can be a scary place. We're doing the toy drive to try to give kids in shelters some kind of normalcy. We're giving back."
