T.I. Harris’ Harris Community Works hosted its 15th Annual Turkey Giveaway in Atlanta’s Westside community benefitting pre-selected underserved families and seniors on Tuesday, November 24, 2020, at 2 pm.
Like years past, he and his nonprofit, a subsidiary of Us or Else Corp (501c3), has hosted the event to secure Thanksgiving meals for families and seniors who depend on the donation of 1,000 turkeys and produce (greens & sweet potatoes) to make the holiday dinners complete.
Because of the global pandemic, the distribution will be different this year. Those who are coming to pick up the donation will do so via a drive-through pick up.
Also in compliance with the city’s and CDC COVID-19 recommendations, all of the event is hosted outside.
This year, the non-profit has partnered with the City of Atlanta along with other contributors including Humana, Kroger, AKOO, Bankhead Seafood, and will be joined by Councilmember Andrea Boone, family members, friends, local Atlanta representatives, and dozens of volunteers.
Earlier this year, the Grand Hustle Rapper released his 11th studio album, The L.I.B.R.A. and partnered with AllHipHop to award several readers thousands of dollars in two campaigns.
For Tip, there is a connection between his success and his giving back to the community that made him the “King of the South.”
The Harris Community Work’s mission according to a press release “is to work with public, private, and community partners to ignite change through economic development, neighborhood revitalization, community transformation, support services and programs for distressed communities.”
