JuJu, through his JuJu Foundation, surprised the families, letting them know via a drive-through event that their layaway balances had been completely paid off.
“I am truly blessed to be able to give back to families in Pittsburgh and California during the holidays,” said Smith-Schuster, Chairman of the JuJu Foundation. “We hope paying off these layaway balances will cause a sense of relief and lift the spirit of all of these families.”
