Crossland High School Dance Company, students, staff, and Wanda’s Hope Klozet organization hosted a “Pull-up and Pop The Trunk Turkey Giveaway”

The giveaway fed local residents in Temple Hills, Maryland.

Prince George’s County Public School’s Crossland High School Dance Company, students, staff, and Wanda’s Hope Klozet organization hosted a “Pull-up and Pop The Trunk Turkey Giveaway” on Monday, December 21, 2020, at Crossland High School in Temple Hills, Maryland.

Wanda’s Hope Klozet members and community partners, Mr. Kenneth Brown of Ebenezer AME Church, Ms. Charlita Proctor of G.S. Proctor and Associates, Inc., and Mr. Walter James from Prince George’s County Community Relations office assisted with resources and support for this successful community service event.

So many local families have been significantly impacted by the school and government closures related to COVID-19 and Wanda’s Hope Klozet and partners were able to give away over 100 turkeys and PPE packages to the public as they drove through the parking lot. Principal Michael Gilchrist, Wanda J. Knotts, students, and staff helped children and families as they navigate through today’s life challenges and hardships during this holiday season. Here are some highlights from the community service event that you can share with family and friends!

Having experienced the loss of my home and business due to hurricane Katrina, I truly understand the challenges of rebuilding one’s entire life after a devastation. I have a strong desire to connect communities to proper resources to restore Hope so families can thrive. This is why this event was so important to me, says Wanda J. Knotts

“We aim to become the global organization providing goods and services to people in need, within an environment of respect and dignity. We are of the belief that together, we have a responsibility to care for those who are suffering because of disparities and inequities so that everyone can benefit from basic life needs,” says Danielle Manning-Halsey, Board Chair of Wanda’s Hope Klozet.
