R&B sensation Trey Songz has teamed up with Chicago businessman and activist Harold “Noonie” Ward to bring smiles to at-risk youth this holiday season. The two formed a bond after witnessing a violent altercation in Chicago.

Out of  the altercation, “Christmas in the Hood” was born.

From All Hip Hop:

“He was in town when we saw some bs together where some kids got hurt,” Harold “Noonie” Ward told “He said lets do something to help this these kids, so we both said at the same time ‘let’s do a foundation together.”

Trey Songz and Noonie hope to give away over 5,000 toys during the event, which will take place December 21 at the Chicago Youth Center (CYC) in Chicago.
