There was an abundance of holiday spirit being shown at Big Dave’s Cheesesteaks during their 5th Annual Holiday Giveaway on December 17. 

Sponsored by Derrick Haynes, the owner of Big Dave’s Cheesesteaks and the College Park Wal-Mart SuperCenter, the event consisted of guests receiving free toys and even basic necessities such as pampers and infant supplies. 

Corina Adams, the Marketing Coordinator of College Park Wal-Mart SuperCenter believes the best part of doing this collaboration with Haynes was seeing the joy on each individual’s face after choosing their items.

“We are hoping people are coming out so that we can support,” Adams stated.

Vee Reddington, the Store Manager of College Park Wal-Mart has worked with Haynes before and wants to continue partnering to give back to those in need.

“Seeing how he gives back to the community- I would rather be with him than people who do not give back to the community,” Reddington said. 

Haynes is committed to being there for those who need his support and likes to see children smile. He is a Philadelphia native who is ensuring that he creates a legacy for not only himself,but for others.
