Ne-Yo Visits Brookhaven Boys & Girls Club

The R&B star brought toys, clothing and other gifts to the club over the Christmas holidays.

R&B artist Ne-Yo brought smiles to underprivleged youth when he visited the Brookhaven Boys & Girls Club on Dec. 20 with a special delivery of toys, clothing, electronics and bicycles.

The toys were given as part of Ne-Yo’s annual Compound Foundation Giving Tour. Items were supplied to the children through donations from various local organizations including: Coca Cola, Creative Recreation, Ubisoft, Toys for Tots, and Carol's Daughter.

Earlier in the year, the Compound Foundation financed a $1 million studio, built within a group home, to inspire young people through music.

“Kids are being counted out before they even get a chance to fight," Ne-Yo said. "Circumstances of where you come from has nothing to do with who you are.”
