Samuel Love, a 14-year-old from Chicago's South Side, continues to make a difference in the lives of children in need during the holidays. During his sixth annual toy drive, he set out to collect 15,000 toys and donations for foster children whose lives have been affected by natural disasters. SMG Chatham and SMG Wheaton were honored to once again serve as donation sites for the drive.
The Sam'ta Love Toy Drive received a special donation from Chance the Rapper, who also grew up on Chicago's South Side. Chance, who's hosted a variety of free events for his community at SMG Chatham, gifted the toy drive with over 2,000 toys.
Sam'ta's On His Way!
On December 16, the toy drive delivered over 600 toys to children in Houston schools and shelters, who had been affected by Hurricane Harvey in August. Studio Movie Grill also donated 300 movie passes to the cause.
