‘Tis the season! And Egypt Sherrod is embracing the meaning of the season: stepping outside of herself to make sure the less fortunate are straight.
Here’s how Egypt is giving back.
“Egypt’s Give Back Tour” is a coat, toy, and fundraising drive to benefit the Tri-State area’s financially challenged residents. The 5-day tour will be anchored by a daily 5-hour radio live broadcast originating from locations in Brooklyn, Bronx, Harlem, Queens and Newark, NJ (heard via 107.5 WBLS-FM).
While the holidays can be the most joyful times of the year, they can also be the most stressful times of the year as people are faced with the decision of want vs. need. Having recognized that one small act of consideration or selflessness can impact a life on a major level, the “Egypt’s Give Back Tour” was birthed.
“Recent statistics report that well over a half a million NYC residents will lose their unemployment benefits between now and May of 2011. That number is staggering!” Egypt stated. “I’ve always felt a sense of responsibility to utilize the power I have behind the radio microphone to serve a much greater calling to help our communities; one that gives a voice and hope to the legions of Tri-state residents whose basic everyday needs might otherwise go unmet. The Give Back Tour is a big step in that direction,” Egypt added.
Listeners are encouraged to donate new or clean, barely worn coat or unwrapped toys for all ages. Please be advised that financial donations will be accepted as well.
