In response, Bishop Edgar said,
“WE’VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS HERE IN THE CITY, WITH FEED THE CHILDREN, WITH MAGIC JOHNSON AND WITH OUR OTHER CORPORATE PARTNERS. JUST TO SEE THE IMPACT, THE JOY ON THE PEOPLE’S FACES,” SAID VANN.”
To top it off, Johnson thanked all of the volunteers. It was a very unselfish deed to those less fortunate. As I mentioned earlier, Johnson has been providing employment at his famous Magic Johnson Theaters.
