Adonis C. Expose’, a former King Zulu hosted his 23rd Annual Toy Drive on Saturday, December 11th from 1:00 P.M – 4:00 P.M. at Zulu’s Roy E. Glapion Hall, 730 N. Broad St., NOLA 70119. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, the Toy Drive was a Drive-By Toy Drive this year.
Before the event, Expose’ told Data, “It’s safe to say, there’s no safe way we could gather to have a normal toy drive with a festive crowd mix and mingling in a building, bringing new toys. This Drive-By Toy Drive will be safe and festive as we will have Santa Claus, Zulu’s Toys for Tots Committee and community volunteers on the sidewalk waving at the passing attendees in their cars as they collect the new unwrapped toys.”
Regarding the proceeds from the event, he said, “The toys collected will be donated to Zulu for their upcoming Toy Giveaway right before Christmas. We want to make sure we do as much as we can to bring a smile to the faces of as many kids as possible, especially given these challenging times.”
