CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Jennifer Hudson is getting into the Christmas spirit in her native Chicago.

The actress and singer handed out toys on Monday through the foundation she co-founded in honor of her late nephew.

The Julian D. King Gift Foundation has collected thousands of toys for Chicago families in need. It was the foundation's fourth annual toy giveaway.

Hudson, her son and her sister participated in the event at The Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center in Chicago. Officials say more than 1,000 people stood in line to receive toys.

Hudson first earned fame as an "American Idol" finalist. She won a Grammy for her self-titled album and an Oscar for her role in "Dreamgirls."
