The event, hosted at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation Center, provided toys to over 3,500 kids in need. The Dreamchasers rapper—along with the Sixers' Trey Burke, Philly rapper Shawn Smith, heavyweight boxer Darmani Rock, and dirt biker Chino Braxton—handed out bikes, video games, art kits, board games and much more. He also raffled off 10 Xboxes and tickets to 76ers games. Meek partnered with PUMA, Activision, GoPuff, and Docuvault for the event. Here's some video of the event: Last year, Meek donated $100,000 worth of toys at his first holiday toy giveaway.

In a clip published by TMZ, the group is informed that each single kid will get $500 to spend in the store, while families would get a minimum of $1,000. "Everyone here today is here for one reason: 'cause all of you have been negatively affected by the probation and parole system," said Michael Rubin, 76ers co-owner and a REFORM Alliance co-founder. "... I always thought that people who went to prison committed crimes. And you know what? Everyone in this room today has a mom or a dad who's currently incarcerated [or] who has been previously incarcerated for not committing a crime ... That's why we started the REFORM Alliance, because we want to get at least a million people out of the system who don't belong in the system. And most importantly, we want to get the probation and parole laws changed..." He continued: "We want to make a really special day for all of you ... we want you guys to have the best day ever. But we also want to make sure we use this to highlight why we need to change the probation and parole laws in every single state." Amazing when everyone in sports comes together for something even bigger! Really enjoyed hosting a shopping spree at the @nbastore for kids who have had one of there parents sent to prison for technical violations (that means NOT committing a crime)!! pic.twitter.com/A8jy2FK6Ck — Michael Rubin (@MichaelGRubin) December 21, 2019 A warm welcome from @MeekMill to dozens of children being treated to the shopping spree in time for Christmas.

They had the opportunity to watch the Patriots play the Buffalo Bills on Saturday as well as meet Tom Brady. The shopping spree is over. Now families from Philadelphia are boarding the @Patriots team plane and flying to the NFL game. The invitation is from Robert Kraft, a board member with @REFORM which organized this full day. For many of these kids, this is their first flight. @6abc pic.twitter.com/dsmB7MCMZI — Sharrie Williams (@WilliamsSharrie) December 21, 2019 .@REFORM Alliance co-founder Robert Kraft, co-chair @MichaelGRubin & advocate @DARollins are hosting a VIP holiday experience for more than 50 children impacted by the probation system at today’s game, including a pregame trip to the field. pic.twitter.com/h26YgMF4hY — New England Patriots (@Patriots) December 21, 2019 Kraft and Rubin spoke about the day during a halftime interview.
