Photos: Errol Spence Hosts Toy Giveaway For Kids in Dallas

DALLAS - Unbeaten welterweight world champion Errol Spence Jr. and his trainer Derrick James have spent the first part of the holiday season giving back to their local community in and around Dallas through a Holiday Toy Drive they hosted throughout December to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of greater Dallas.

Spence and James encouraged locals to donate toys to the Boys and Girls Club leading up to Monday, December 18 when Spence and James arrived at the Lipscomb Boys & Girls Club to make their own donation and visit with the kids.

"It's always important to give back, especially during the holidays," said Spence. "Not everybody grows up knowing if they'll have toys under the tree, so I just wanted to make sure I could help as many kids as possible and put a smile on some faces this holiday season. My city made me who I am so it's the least I can do to help spread some positivity this time of year."

"I wanted to host this toy drive because I grew up in the Oak Cliff Boys and Girls Club," said James. "They gave me so much, so I feel obligated and honored to give back. These clubs help so many underserved families and kids. I wanted to do what I could to help make their wishes come true."
