ASAP Rocky used his position to give back to those less fortunate, like many rappers did on Thanksgiving. According to TMZ, the Harlem native personally delivered 120 hot meals to the Regent Family Residence homeless shelter in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, situated on 104th Street and Broadway Avenue.
The building has a particular place in Rocky’s heart due to the fact he and his mother Renee Black used to stay at the shelter in the early 2000s. Rocky provided food from one of his favorite Harlem restaurants, Amy Ruth’s Restaurant, which serves a home style Southern cuisine. His generous efforts helped feed 83 families, including 111 kids.
The Regent Family Residence is part of Volunteers of America, a national nonprofit organization “dedicated to helping individuals and families in need create positive and lasting change through social service programs that support and empower them to live safe, healthy and productive lives.”
Rocky reportedly carried out COVID-19 safety protocols by contactlessly handing over the meals.
