Lupe Fiasco recently talked to 107.5 WGCI’s Tony Sculfield and the Morning Riot to discuss his latest charitable outreach program. According to Fake Shore Drive, Carrera Lu and his Lupe Fiasco Foundation are preparing to launch their first annual winter coat drive in his Chicago. Lupe explained that with winter fast approaching, he wanted to take the opportunity to mobilize his city’s residents to help the less fortunate.
“The Lupe Fiasco Foundation is basically something that me and my sister and my family and different people around the city put together t just launch different initiatives to uplift the community from the education side to just the hands-on side with…food drives and this is our first annual coat drives,” he said. “It’s just something that I’ve been doing personally for a long time behind the scenes. it’s just something now where we can reach out and hopefully mobilize other people to come out and help…and help put some positivity back into their city.”
He added, “[Our goal is] 1000 coats, and that’s the low end. We’re starting out small. Winter time’s coming, and you know how winter is in Chicago. Even with all the climate change it’s still cold.”
