While some of us were spending spending some quality time with our families, stuffing our faces (*raises hand*), a few celebrities spent part of the holiday giving back to their respective communities.

The City of College Park, Brady Recreation Center, & all the volunteers for working with #KandiCares to make this happen! I want to say a big thanks to@chanitafoster who runs my foundation. In the few short months that’s she’s been working with me I’ve been able to step up my “giving” a Hundred percent! It made me feel good to be able to be there for all the families that reached out to us.
