Philly’s own Meek Mill announced details for his first-annual “A Dreamchaser’s Thanksgiving.” The event is slated to be free Pre-Thanksgiving Turkey giveaway. According to hiphopdx, its aim is to feed approximately 600 families in the Philadelphia community.
"Philly raised me and made me into the man I am today, so to do the first annual 'A Dreamchaser's Thanksgiving' was an obvious thing to do," Meek Mill says in a statement. "I'm blessed to be in a position where I can make sure that as many people as possible have a meal on Thanksgiving, so that they can be with their loved ones to enjoy the holiday."
The event will benefit local Philly organizations, including Youth Working Together, Town Watch and Unity In The Community. In addition to the rapper's attendance, Mayor Michael Nutter also plans to make an appearance.
"I applaud Meek Mill for taking the initiative to give back to his home town," Mayor Nutter says in a statement. "Gathering together with family and friends around a shared meal is one of the most important aspects of the holiday season. It is important to give thanks for all that we have, and I am proud that one of Philadelphia's own is donating his time and resources to make sure families in our city can do just that." Shoutout to Meek for giving back to the community that raised him, and this is going to help out hundreds of families. Salute you homie!
