Meek Molle has teamed up with Kevin Hart and esteemed businessman Michael Rubin to put together a massive donation to help low-income students in the Philadelphia area.
According to a press release, the trio’s donation of 7 million dollars will be spread over 60 private schools and elementary schools. The money will be used in part to offer the students scholarships and provide them with home tools such as WiFi, laptops and tablets.
This marks just the latest collaborative effort Meek and Michael Rubin have undergone as part of their commitment to giving back to those in need, resulting in a total of $17 million in donations across previous years.
The donation comes shortly after the pair teamed up with The Philadelphia Eagles and 76ers for their holiday “Season Of Giving” event. In partnership with Meek’s REFORM Alliance, more than 30 New York children, all of whom had parents unfairly affected by the criminal justice system, were treated to a superstar-filled Christmas.
Meek Mill, La La Anthony and Cordae just a few celebrities were on hand to join the festivities as the kids were treated to a tour of the Barclays Center, a chance to meet New York Liberty players and even got to watch the game from a suite filled with merchandise and gifts.
Meek Mill also recently took on the challenge reunited 20 incarcerated Philadelphia women with their families for holidays by paying for each their respective deposit.
Five of the women, all held at Riverside Correctional Facility in Philadelphia, were released on Dec. 23, while the others were released the following week, the REFORM Alliance said in a news release.
The women also each received a gift card to help them with last-minute vacations or grocery shopping, and Meek explained that his own experiences as an incarcerated parent inspired him to perform this generous act.
“It was devastating for me to be away from my son for the holidays when I was incarcerated,” Meek Mill explained in the statement. “So I understand what these women and their families are going through. No one should have to spend the holidays in jail just because they can’t afford bail. I’m grateful for the opportunity to help these women be with their families and loved ones at this special time of year.”
