Tyler Perry has done it once again. The renowned Hollywood film executive has shared amongst five thousand local families, non-perishable food items and gift cards to assist in their Thanksgiving Festivities. The activity took place yesterday, November 22 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Perry delivered the goodwill act via his famous Tyler Perry Studios stationed in Atlanta as well. According to local reports, the line for the giveaway stretched for miles explaining how extensive the deed was.
In wake of strict social distancing at all public gatherings, the event was conducted as a drive-thru and required families to stay in their cars while receiving food. The event also required face masks to be worn at all times.
Aside Perry’s recorded empowerment acts for many mainstream Hollywood black actors, he is also credited for his philanthropic endeavours that help make the world a better place. During the early periods of quarantine, Perry gave $21,000 in tips to workers at one of his favourite local restaurants and paid for the groceries of Atlanta seniors.
Under his Perry Foundation, founded in 2006, the Hollywood Powerhouse has gone to the rescue of several communities that have been affected by natural occurrences. In 2010, he pledged the sum of $1 million via his foundation to help rebuild Haiti, after it went through an earthquake. He also offered financial support to those affected by 2017’s Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, as well as Hurricane Dorian in 2019.
