Meek Mill Donates $500k in Christmas Gifts to His Hometown

Dream Chasers founder is doing some good for his hometown of Philadelphia. According to a recent Instagram post, Meek Mill is channeling the spirit of Santa Claus and donating $500,000 worth of toys to Philly families in need.

With the help of Patriots owner Robert Kraft, 76ers partner Michael Rubin and his managers at Roc Nation, Meek plans to gift bikes, video game gift cards, laptops, tablets, dolls and more to dozens of families. The event takes place on December 19 where he’ll also be donating another $30,000 to the local chapter of Twelve Days of Christmas, a volunteer organization supplying families during the holiday season.
