Hugs from Pun Foundation Distributing School Supplies in Honor of Christopher "Big Pun" Rios

On Saturday, September 3rd school supplies will be distributed by the Hugs for Pun Foundation. Any parents wishing to secure needed schools supplies should bring their children to the Big Pun Mural on Rogers Place and E. 163rd Street. The school supply give away is an annual tradition in honor of the deceased Christopher "Big Pun" Rios. "Big Pun" was the First Latino hip-Hop artist to go Platinum. He was born and raised in the Bronx.

The items will be distributed on a first come first serve basis and parents must show proper identification with proof of address. There is a limit of two items per household. Please do review the attached flyer and good luck to all the kids as they get ready for the first day of the 2011/2012 school year.

Kudos to his sister Nicole and everyone who has nurtured and grown this South Bronx tradition. This year will make the 11th consecutive year where school supplies are distributed to community youth free of charge. Personally, I can not think of a better way to honor the death of someone loved by the community. It looks like the foundation truly has its heart in the right place. Please do forward this information to any parents you know who have children in grades K – 5th.
