Jennifer Hudson to give away backpacks in nephew's honor
August 13, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Singer Jennifer Hudson and her family plan to hand out free school supplies to 5,000 inner city students Tuesday.
The second annual Julian D. King Hatch Day Celebration takes place at The Salvation Army's Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center at 1250 West 119th Street, http://kroccenterchicago.org/, at 10 a.m. until supplies run out.
The event honors Hudson's nephew Julian, who -- along with Hudson's mother and brother -- was killed in 2008. Julian would have turned 11 on Tuesday.
Hatch Day was an idea Julian came up with, according to a release from the Julian D. King Gift Foundation. The event is to help "hatch" the dreams of school-aged children.
Pre K- 12 th grade students should bring their school supply list and a school-issued ID, medical insurance card or report card from 2011-2012. Parents/custodial caregivers also need to bring ID.
