It is the fourth year for the Hatch Day celebration, as Hudson calls it. During the event, enough supplies for 5,000 kids, including backpacks, notebooks, pens and pencils, are handed out.

The sisters have the charity event every year in memory of their slain family members. Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew were killed in 2008 by a friend of her sister's. Her nephew, Julian, was 7-years-old when he died.
