Meek Mill Kicks Off First Annual “A Dreamchaser’s Thanksgiving”

Meek Mill always carries his hometown on his back. The Philadelphia native is using his influence as an artist to give back to those less fortunate during the holidays.

Via Karen Civil reports:

“Philly raised me and made me into the man I am today, so to do the first annual ‘A Dreamchaser’s Thanksgiving,’ was an obvious thing to do. I’m blessed to be in a position where I can make sure that as many people as possible have a meal on Thanksgiving, so that they can be with their loved ones to enjoy the holiday.” Meek said.

The MMG artist aims to feed nearly 600 families within the Philadelphia community taking place Tuesday (November 26) and Wednesday (November 27). The turkey give-a-way will benefit local Philly organizations including Youth Working Together, Town Watch and Unity in the Community.

Meek, Mayor Nutter and other special guests will be in attendance during the two-day events.

“I applaud Meek Mill for taking the initiative to give back to his home town,” Mayor Nutter said. “Gathering together with family and friends around a shared meal is one of the most important aspects of the holiday season. It is important to give thanks for all that we have, and I am proud that one of Philadelphia’s own is donating his time and resources to make sure families in our city can do just that.”
