Justin Timberlake + Jessica Biel Give Back to Hurricane Sandy Victims in New York
Newlyweds Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were rocked by Hurricane Sandy, even when they were enjoying their honeymoon. Their heartwarming plan of action? As soon as they got back, they rushed to volunteer to help victims, distributing supplies and taking photos with tykes.
Biel and Timberlake spent almost four hours in the Rockaways in Queens, N.Y. yesterday (Nov. 10). The pair helped distribute blankets, backpacks, bedding and more during their charitable excursion. Timberlake also provided comic relief, joking around with residents and trying to make their hearts a little lighter following the devastation that the super storm left behind.
Timbaland joined the couple for the project. All three stayed until their truck full of supplies was completely empty, and Biel even helped to break down empty cardboard boxes once all the supplies were given out. More important than the goods that were distributed were the smiles that Biel and Timberlake (Timberbiel?) brought to the victims. One witness tweeted, “Shout out to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel for serving along side of us in Rockaway and giving the kids something to talk about besides Sandy.”
The move isn’t only charitable and kind, but also a good P.R. move for the couple, who came under serious scrutiny after a guest played a video exploiting homeless people at their wedding. Though Timberlake and Biel denounced the video afterward and claimed to not know its contents at their big day, it still raised quite a few eyebrows. It’s great to see them making good, because they really are two class acts.
