Christmas in Yonkers – Ron’s Trucking Corp. thanks community with annual giveaway
Ron Williams, owner of Ron's Trucking Corp., came up with the idea of holding an annual raffle for toys and home goods – bringing some Christmas joy to Yonkers in the middle of May.
Local residents get the opportunity to head home with products they may not otherwise be able to afford.
Williams purchases all of the merchandise himself and feels it is a good way for him to give back to his community.
"I am very thankful to be an African American and still here, so God's been great to me. My mother taught me to do something for someone other than yourself. It’s all about the community. Without the community, you wouldn't have anything," says Williams.
