Future‘s FreeWishes Foundation blessed families in metro Atlanta during its ninth annual Winter Wishland Christmas giveaway. The event took place over the weekend and saw many treated to a free shopping spree at Target.

“We’re here to make sure that some of the kids will be able to get some of the toys and personal hygiene items of their desire,” said Future’s mother, Stephanie Jester, CEO and co-founder of the foundation. “We understand that everyone just can’t go out and shop this year, so why not be a blessing to the families, especially when we’re blessed all year long.”

“Christmas has always been another opportunity to give and not receive for the foundation. We’ve been committed to giving back to those in need for over 10 years, especially in metro Atlanta and the neighborhood we grew up in, Kirkwood,” adds Future’s sister Tia Wilburn. She co-founded the foundation with Jester 13 years ago.

The Winter Wishland Christmas giveaway is one of many events the foundation hosts throughout the year. Jester and Wilburn have previously given out scholarships, hosted wellness events for senior citizens and brought free grocery pop-up markets to families for Thanksgiving.
