Compton, CA – Kicking off the Holiday season with a bang, RGE Cares is proud to announce that they have teamed up with Foot Locker LA, PUMA, Mattel and a number of other organizations to give back to the community for their 2nd annual Christmas Giveaway on December 18th, 2021 . With special guest appearances from artists and athletes, kids will have the opportunity to take photos with special guests and receive autographs. RGE Cares will be giving away gift cards, shoes, food courtesy of Chick-Fil-A Long Beach Traffic Circle, Buffalo Wild Wings Cerritos and coffee from the local Compton Gateway Center Starbucks! RGE Cares is aware of the struggles that the community of Compton is facing due to the pandemic, which is why they say they feel it is their duty to give back to the people and uplift one another. RGE Co-Founders James Knox & Maurice Jones are Compton natives and are returning to the city to give back to those in need. This is a COVID compliant event – that being said, masks and social distancing are required.
“We’re extremely happy to continue to get involved in the community where we were raised. To be able to partner with some many great organizations and Robin to make something special like this happen is what I’ve always dreamed of doing” says RGE Cares Founder & Executive Director James Knox.
