Howard, JC Penney treat youth to shopping spree

Dwight Howard and JC Penny treated local children from the YMCA of Metro Atlanta with a holiday shopping experience at the Northlake Mall Tuesday.

About 50 children had a meet-and-greet and photo opportunity with Howard followed by help from the Hawks center to select gifts for their families.

JC Penney also made a $100,000 donation to the YMCA.
