BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Glen "Big Baby" Davis Foundation held their Hope for the Holidays Workshop at Gus Young Park on Saturday afternoon.

The foundation handed out toys to homeless kids in the area as part of the foundation's Hope for The Holidays Tour.

The tour is making several stops across the Southeast this season, and the Davis Foundation says that they are happy to help out in the community that "Big Baby" grew up in.

The foundation aims to steer inner city youths into brighter futures through education, literacy programs, and healthy lifestyles.

Davis played basketball for LSU, leading them to the Final Four in 2006. He now plays basketball professionally in the NBA and is a Power Forward for the Los Angeles Clippers.
