Once again Tiombé spent her Christmas
morning handing out gift bags to the homeless in Washington, DC. The special event is organized by
several members of her church, New Home Baptist Church, who gathered donations of
clothing, toiletries, and hygiene products and then packaged them up for
giveaways. Tiombé solicited donations from her sport’s federation, USA Track
& Field, the Friends of Mid-Atlantic Track organization, Safeway, her
dentist, family, and friends.
Other church members gathered numerous donations as well, and together
they were able to stuff over 100 backpacks with several hygiene items and dental
care items. The church members drove to a few parks in Washington, DC and handed
out every backpack and numerous articles of warm clothing. Tiombé plans on participating
in this special sharing event every Christmas.
