Meek Mill To Gift Laptops And Tablets In $500K Holiday Giveaway For Philadelphia Families
US rapper Meek Mill has announced that he will be donating $500,000 worth of Christmas gifts to Philadelphia families in need – joining him in his quest to give back to the community is Philadelphia 76ers partner Michael Rubin, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, and Roc Nation.
The event is reportedly taking place on December 19.
“We stepping BIGGER than ever this year for the youth of the city!” he wrote via Instagram before the official announcement.
Holiday gifts for families will include MacBook Air laptops, Amazon Fire HD tablets, bikes and helmets, video game gift cards, board games, winter coats, dolls, playsets, playing cards, gift cards, and more.
He will also be donating $30,000 to the Philadelphia chapter of Twelve Days of Christmas, a volunteer organization that helps provide donations to less fortunate families during the holidays.
This isn’t the first time Meek has done this.
In 2020, he kept his streak alive despite the restrictions of the virus pandemic by delivering holiday gifts to 35 Philadelphia families affected by the criminal justice system, along with a special video call.
The official location for the giveaway has yet to be announced, but past giveaways have been held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center in North Philadelphia.
