Megan Thee Stallion is teaming up with U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee and the National Association of Christian Churches (NACC) Disaster Services to rebuild her Texas hometown after the deadly winter storm.
The Good News emcee will raise funds to repair and rebuild homes for senior citizens and single mothers. Not only will Meg partner with Lee and the NACC, some of her celebrity friends and brand partners will also support the cause, including Maroon 5, Taraji P. Henson, Revlon, Coach, Mielle, Fashion Nova and her 300 Entertainment label.
“Seeing the devastation and hearing the heartbreaking stories that have surfaced, I knew I had to do something to help my hometown,” Megan said in a statement.
“I am so happy that Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, the NACC and I aligned on the goal of repairing the homes of the elderly and uninsured single moms who are the most vulnerable and often displaced by these kinds of devastating events,” she continued.
NACC and Congresswoman Lee will work on referrals for homes that need rebuilding through the Helping Houston Rebuild website. Residents will receive funds based on a lottery and critical needs. Claims adjusters will assess damages and professionals will gauge electricity, plumbing and structural repairs. Volunteers will remove items that have been damaged from water.
“Throughout my Congressional District and Houston, I saw the pain of people having destroyed homes. The historic and tragic disaster that was driven by the freeze and lack of preparation of the Texas electric grid caused lives to be lost and families to be displaced,” Congresswoman Lee said in a statement. “The collective efforts of Megan Thee Stallion, the NACC and the 18th Congressional District will help restore the lives and hopes of people who suffered from no fault of their own. Our goal is to rebuild and restore these homes, which is imperative for my constituents to feel safe and secure. Thank you to Megan Thee Stallion and NACC, and I look forward to working with you on this very important project of restoration of people’s homes.”
