NYC Radio Personality/National TV Host, Egypt Sherrod, presents the First Annual “Egypt’s Give Back Tour,” in partnership with non-profit charities including New York Cares, Toys 4 Tots, The Children’s Aid Society, Jersey Cares and Hudson Cradle taking place December 13-17, 2010, 10am-3pm.”Egypt’s Give Back Tour” is a coat, toy, and fundraising drive to benefit the Tri-State area’s financially challenged residents. The 5-day tour will be anchored by a daily 5-hour radio live broadcast ori ginating from locations in Brooklyn, Bronx, Harlem, Queens and Newark, NJ (heard via 107.5 WBLS-FM).

While the holidays can be the most joyful times of the year, they can also be the most stressful times of the year as people are faced with the decision of want vs. need. Having recognized that one small act of consideration or selflessness can impact a life on a major level, the “Egypt’s Give Back Tour” was birthed.

“Recent statistics report that well over a half a million NYC residents will lose their unemployment benefits between now and May of 2011. That number is staggering!” Egypt stated. “I’ve always felt a sense of responsibility to utilize the power I have behind the radio microphone to serve a much greater calling to help our communities; one that gives a voice and hope to the legions of Tri-state residents whose basic everyday needs might otherwise go unmet. The Give Back Tour is a big step in that direction,” Egypt added.
