Jennifer Hudson & Sister Julia Provide School Supplies to Over 8,100 Chicago Students In Need at Hatch Day!

Jennifer Hudson is all smiles as she gets together with her sister Julia Hudson at their 2014 Hatch Day Celebration held at the Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center on Thursday (August 14) in Chicago, Ill.

The 32-year-old entertainer was joined by a big team of volunteers at the fourth annual event on behalf of the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, which was created in honor of Julia‘s son and Jennifer‘s nephew, Julian D. King, who would’ve been 13-years-old this year.

Students ranging in grades K-12 walked through tables piled high with supplies for the upcoming school year, picking exactly what they needed from their list and stuffing gifted back packs, all provided by the Foundation and its supporters.

“Our goal each year is very simple,” Jennifer said about the event. “We want these kids to know we are here for them and paying attention to their needs. If one child walks away with that feeling, then we’ve been successful. Chicago needs positive support more than ever and we hope that by doing this, we can encourage the next generation to keep on in that direction.”
