Master P works to help at-risk families with upcoming holiday season
A hip hop mogul has pledged to help curb the violence among Louisville’s youth with various community programs that engage hundreds of children in the metro.
Master P is working with 4th Street Live! Jefferson County Public Schools and Lincoln Elementary Performing Arts School to help at risk families with the upcoming holidays
“We’re starting a holiday food drive, which is called Compassion and Let the Kids Grow,” said Jim Layson general manager of 4th Street Liuve!” and its really not your average food drive.
The food drive is meant to feed the needy, but also meant to nourish the community with compassion.
“We’re just trying to find different ways to have the coneectiveness working together,” Layson said.
Christopher 2x said the concept was simple.
“Lincoln Elementary is going to take the lead in trying to execute these perishable items to families throughout the holidays 2x said.
Master P’s goal in the initiative is to help at risk youth learn to help other at risk youth to build a bridge of understanding and compassion.
“These kids are my energy,” Master P said. “When I came here and did the basketball camp, I couldn’t stop thinking about them, the kids that I met.”
The kickoff for the community-wide holiday food drive is set for Nov. 23
