On Sunday, December 14, 2014 The Harlem Cares Family (Yandy Smith, Original Housewife Collection, Pretty in Black Catering, EGL – Everything Girls Love and myself presented the 2nd Annual toy drive with The Winter Wonderland theme to the Harlem community. The event was held from 1pm to 5pm at The Kennedy Center *Thank you @billycharlem for providing the venue* (34 W 134th Street between Lenox and Fifth Avenue) in the effort to collect toys and coats from attendees to donate to deserving less fortunate families this year. This year differed from last year as we invited the adults to bring children for a day of fun filled activities, entertainment and food.
