Travis Scott and his Cactus Jack Foundation are making sure kids in Houston have presents this Christmas. According to Complex, the 30-year-old Houston native and his nonprofit organization hosted their second annual toy drive this week, giving out more than 5,000 toys and other holiday gifts to kids in the H-Town area.
Volunteers and organizers reportedly set up gift distribution stations at six Houston Housing Authority complexes throughout the city and handed out presents on Thursday (Dec. 24).
Photos of the gift-giving festivities show Scott and volunteers handing out dolls, toy golf sets, keyboards, scooters, bikes and more at the makeshift booths to local kids and their families.
According to The Houston Chronicle, the toy drive was co-hosted with the Houston Housing Authority. Along with distributing their own gifts, the Cactus Jack Foundation also replaced hundreds of toys that were stolen from a local church earlier this month, the outlet reports.
The charitable drive arrives on the heels of Scott’s new initiative aimed at strengthening festival security and safety. As reported by REVOLT, the “Sicko Mode” MC is working with the United States Conference of Mayors to form a committee made up of government, public safety, emergency response, healthcare, event management, music and technology officials that will create a safety plan for public events based on what went wrong at November’s horrific Astroworld Festival.
Speaking with Charlamagne The God, Scott said he has a “responsibility to figure out what happened” at the festival to ensure a similar tragedy never happens again. According to TMZ, the committee’s goal is to “aggressively focus on new technologies and innovations that offer ways to address [the] challenges” that happened at the festival and create new safety protocols going forward.
