Surprise Visit from Rapper Jadakiss Brings Holiday Cheer to Youth in Foster Care

December 15, 2021 / Independent Youth News

Christmas came early this year at one of our residences for youth in foster care. Famed rapper/recording artist, Jadakiss, made a surprise visit to the home – bearing bags full of gifts.

Jadakiss reached out to Marjorie Etienne, SCO’s Case Planner for the home, letting her know he wanted to do something special for the boys who live there. He stopped by to meet the young men, bringing with him brand new Jordan sneakers, hats, sweatshirts, jackets and t-shirts for everyone! Our youth were thrilled to meet Jadakiss and receive all those wonderful gifts!
