21 Savage is back to host another back-to-school drive in Atlanta.
This year, 21 Savage is partnering with Amazon Music, Leading by Example Foundation, and Momma Flystyle for the event taking place on Sunday, Aug. 4 from 12 pm to 6 pm local time.
21 Savage wants to continue giving back to the community as much as he can. The purpose is to giveaway school uniforms, school supplies, and free haircuts for both boys and girls.
Speaking with VIBE about the drive last year, 21 Savage said, “I went to school in Dekalb and Gwinnett County. This is important since we didn’t have this as kids.”
21 Savage’s co-manager Meezy added, “It takes being from here to understand what is needed. This is Dekalb County, I grew up here and I want to make sure these kids have nothing to worry about.”
Overall, it’s a genuine compassion for families and their needs that has made this drive so successful. “We hope that people get inspired. Everybody can feel like money,” Meezy said. “This takes the stress off of a parent that just had to pay their rent.”
This year, 21 Savage has focused more on his philanthropic efforts, expanding his 21 Savage Bank Account Campaign by teaching a monthly online seminar on financial literacy and investing in your future, as well as promising to give jobs to at-risk Atlanta youth. He’s also teasing new music with Savage Mode 2 possibly on the way.
