Giving Back

Updated: Nov 19, 2020




During this pandemic, I have been feeding my community every week,1500 to be exact. I've also given out 360 bookbags and supplies and thrown a community cookout. During this time, every bit counts, and we as a community have to stick together as one. 

I'm also in an organization called Connecticut Bail Fund.  I bond out offenders who can't afford bail. We humanize them so they can be prepared to fight their cases in front of judges and prosecutors. I also find them jobs, programs and shelter.  This is my way of giving back during this strenuous time we live in.
