If you ask Pasadena rapper Bing Bing, it's not just about music. It's about giving back. Bing Bing was gracious to accept an invitation to assist Steve & Susan Wittmer of Friends of Foster Children with sorting gifts for foster children for Christmas 2013.
Bing Bing was on the scene with Paul Gibson of Hathaway-Sycamores and Jonathan, an emancipated foster youth in the Hathaway-Sycamores Transitional Living Program. With adequate volunteers, Friends of Foster Children was able to fulfill the needs of foster children this holiday season. They definitely make a difference. "I enjoyed working with you at the Sugar Plum Sorting Room. I do believe you and Johnathon helped make the project successful again this year. Thank you for your help," says Mr. Wittmer.
"I'm constantly looking for a platform to help those in need. I was honored to have had the opportunity to do this for kid I once was," explains Bing Bing. "I was sorting gifts for kids who live in some of the same group homes I did like Ettie Lee, Hathaway-Sycamores, & Leroy Haynes Center," Bing adds. Friends of Foster Children is an Non-Profit Organization based in the San Gabriel Valley that is dedicated to serve foster children in need. They support the following Centers at different levels. Some get assistance all year and others only at Christmas time. They are:
