Columbus Short is trying to get back on Santa’s nice list this year.
The actor spent time passing out presents to battered women and their families this holiday season.
Columbus partnered with women’s shelter Elizabeth House to hand out Christmas gifts to abused women and their families at the building itself and all throughout L.A.
We’re told he collected over 300 gifts for a toy drive at Sayers Club … and made the rounds at 4 homes, setting up a tree and delivering presents. He also pitched in $2,000 of his own money.
It’s a nice gesture from Columbus, who’s had violent run-ins, including an alleged assault on his ex-wife.
