Romeo and his College Boyys Clothing brand teamed up with the Boys and Girls Club and United Way to help homeless families in Dallas during the holidays.
Not only did they supply hot meals and clothing, but they volunteered their time for Christmas.
“In order to make a difference, you have to better understand who these families are and what happened to them,” said Romeo of giving back. “They are people just like you and I. Some caught a bad break, lost it all, have little or no education, but can recover and bounce back with a little help.
“It feels good to see the kids walking around with t-shirts on that says ‘I’m going to college’. It sends the message of hope and that you can go from nothing to something.”
College Boyys Clothing and Romeo’s mission is to raise awareness for the national epidemic for homeless families and children.
“Despite the living conditions, these families are just like you and I. We can all help make a difference,” added College Boyys Clothing VP, Alex Yaghoub. “These families deserve a second chance. These kids will hopefully go to college one day, they are the future of America. Everyone needs to care about this epidemic, it affects us all.”
College Boyys Clothing caters to males from ages 2-7 and 8-20, featuring an array of tops, tees, and sweaters, as well as jeans. The company describes the line as “More than just a clothing brand…”.
