Created in 2013, our group consists of: Donté Gibbs, India Moore, Dominique Tucker and Seretha Etheridge. We came together based on the initial thought of "Lets do something for our city for Christmas..." With families being one of our greatest assets in East Cleveland and with us being raised in East Cleveland, we understand how tough the holidays can be. Hence Donté's Gift Express, where we unwrap the joy of family, together. To date we have surprised 1,536 families with gifts and handwritten cards annually around Christmas. In partnership with 6 neighborhood organizations, we set out to surprise residents by picking 10-12 random streets and with music and lights from the police cars we knock on doors with gifts and cards in hand!
