Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 26, 2009
In a largely populated Latino and African American neighborhood in Watts, California, kids and their families were saddened as several people from the community marched together only a few days ago, with ‘Stop the Violence’ signs due to the increase of gang related violent deaths and crimes just in the month of December. Romeo and P. Miller drove up to the Bradley/Milken Youth and Family Building in an extra large U-haul truck filled with toys and clothes bringing back to the community the Christmas spirit by taking care of the kids and their families. People happily stood in lines, five blocks long, for several hours waiting to be showered with gifts. Thanks to Romeo, P. Miller, Christian Audigier, Reachback LA and OneMillionGifts.org every kid received a gift and every kid left with a smile on their faces.
Founder of Reachback LA Chico Brown said “I just left a funeral a couple days ago. These senseless gang related deaths have to stop. It definitely helps to have P. Miller and Romeo constantly be a part of these kids lives in our community, it gives them hope. A lot of these kids look up to Romeo who plays basketball and attends USC which is located in South Central LA.” Brown continues, “The Millers have been participating and funding this program for four years now. We’re without doubt very thankful for all of the toys and clothes but I think the best gift that these kids have received from P. Miller and Romeo is their time spent in the community.”
P. Miller and Save Our Kids Foundation has visited and donated to 25 cities this year. The goal is to reach one million people this year and next year they plan to double it and reach at least 50 cities. Amber Johns, VP of OneMillionGifts.org stated, “There are so many other communities like this one. Together we can make a difference. We’ve been able to help so many less fortunate families. We’re so thankful for all of the donations from individuals and organizations. Every dollar counts and every volunteer makes a difference. We especially appreciate Six Flags Friends for being our toy donations depot. After the Christmas holidays, we will continue fundraising and reaching out to individuals and corporations for our 2010 mission to help more families.”
