Usher’s New Look foundation donates plant-based food to families in Atlanta
The singer is giving back to his community.
Usher is the latest celebrity to give back to the Atlanta communities during COVID-19. The “You Make Me Wanna” singer’s New Look foundation has donated boxes of plant-based food that will be distributed to families throughout Clayton County.
“We really wanted to offer them just some comfort, some food and also let them know that they are not forgotten,” Usher said to Channel 2′s Tom Jones. New Look has also set up an “emergency fund to provide youth with virtual classes, emergency financial assistance and mental health and wellness support.”
A lot of other celebrities have given back in the city of Atlanta.
Earlier this month, Ludacris and Mike WiLL Made-It joined forces to donate 3,000 masks to Atlanta transit workers.
“We love our city and this is an opportunity to show how much we do when it matters most,” Ludacris said in a press release. “Before Coronavirus happened, we were representing MARTA because it’s a big part of what makes Atlanta special.”
Killer Mike and T.I. recently provided meals, cash and supplies to residents throughout the city. The two artists partnered with PAWkids and Mercedes-Benz to serve meals to more than 500 locals at the Bankhead Seafood Market.
“In any crisis, Black people confront dual challenges. We deal with the challenge of racism and we deal with the crisis itself. COVID-19 is no exception,” T.I. said in a press release. “What we saw today was an overwhelming sense of need, but also a sense of hope. We are investing in that hope and belief that tomorrow will be better than today.”
Tip and Killer Mike also visited homes of the residents and surprised families with $500 in cash, essential supplies, and enough meals to last each family for two weeks.
Shoutout to all of the celebrities giving back during COVID-19.
