Christmas in the Wards 2019 Partners With Community Organizations

A SECOND CHARITABLE event hosted by Larry Huggins, Everett Rand and Tim Rand, founders of Christmas in the Wards and the Chicago Football Classics, was held on Christmas Eve 2019 to give 20 families a holiday shopping spree at Walmart. This year the founders collaborated with several grassroot organizations working in low-income communities on Chicago’s South and West Sides to identify families who needed assistance. Above are some of the families photographed in the checkout line at the Walmart Supercenter located at 10900 S. Doty Ave. in Chicago. Each family received a $250 Walmart Gift Card. Just three days earlier the Christmas in the Wards founders hosted the largest citywide Christmas toy giveaway for hundreds of families at McCormick Place.
