In December, he partnered with JCPenney on their Giving Tuesday event, taking 50 children from a local club Holiday shopping for their families. In return, JCPenney joined Tony in helping to fund the Blessings in a Backpack program for 100 children at the clubs. That program provides bags full of healthy foods for children to take home each weekend, when they do not have access to nutritious meals at school or the clubs.
