Kanye West made a massive donation of more than 4,000 toys during a toy drive in Englewood.
“I'm so proud that Kanye is, once again, responding to our request to help the children of Englewood and beyond. He is no stranger to our community,” Alderman Stephanie Coleman said. “His presence has always been felt in our neighborhoods and he loves visiting, but this Christmas he has truly been our modern-day Santa Claus. He is our hometown hero.”
Kanye gave to Chicago-area children, particularly because some of them don’t have fathers in their lives, because of gun violence.
“…today, we are here being a blessing.” Coleman added. “It isn’t about just Christmas, but it’s a day about unity. And without unity, there is no community.”
