NEWARK, N.J., Dec. 11, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — On Monday, December 14, 2015, The James Brown Family Foundation (JBFF) will continue the legacy of the Legendary Godfather of Soul with charitable giving to The New Community Corporation’s Harmony House.

Christmas is a very special time especially for children. Realizing that, James Brown created The James Brown Toy Giveaway. Deanna Brown Thomas, daughter of the Godfather and President of the James Brown Family Foundation, extends his charitable giving on Monday December 14, 2015 as she brings the James Brown Toy Giveaway to New Jersey!

Grammy® nominated rapper and actor JaRule, his wife Aisha of MTV’s “Follow The Rules,” a comedic half-hour docu-series, and Shanice Williams will join Mrs. Brown Thomas to bring seasonal joy to children. Shanice Williams — actress, singer and the new break-out star best known for her role as “Dorothy” in the recently televised live performance of NBC’s “The Wiz Live!” with over 11.5 million viewers (the most tweeted live program on record) — will be a fan favorite. The children and families will receive holiday gifting, along with a visit from jolly old Saint Nick and special friends.
