Korey Wise, one of the Exonerated Five, joined with Friends of Public School Harlem and the Migdol Family Foundation to host a holiday gift giveaway party. More than 200 families from Lehman Village Houses and the surrounding area were excited to see Korey and get to choose a holiday gift.
“It was great to see the smiles, hear the screams of excitement, and receive the hugs from parents and children,” said Korey Wise. “Being here and providing holiday cheer to children and sending a message that somebody cares is a great feeling. I thank the Friends of Public School Harlem and the Migdol Family for making it happen.”
Jerry Migdol, founder of the Migdol Family Foundation added, “We are just happy to be part of this and be able to give back to the community we love. It’s always so much fun to spend time with these kids and make their holiday special. There’s nothing better. We invite everyone to join us for upcoming Chanukah, Christmas and Kwanza events.”
