Yesterday (July 8), Meek Mill stopped by the scene of a fatal fire that killed four children in Southwest Philadelphia.
Philadelphia radio station Hot 107.9 tweeted about the fire, which started Saturday (July 5), asking for help. Meek Mill responded by tweeting that he would help. He also asked what other successful people from Philadelphia could help.
“I just wanted to come out and participate and bring my help to the families and everybody that took a loss in this situation,” Meek Mill says, “’cause I be feeling like nine times out of 10 they never really use us in a way that it could benefit the community, so you know I come out and use myself.
“Only time I’m really on the news or on the radio it’s something about probation,” he continues. “I feel like I’m in a position [where] I could be able to help these people so easily, get donations and get things they need to help them with their losses right now so you know I’m gonna do it.”
The amount of Meek Mill’s donation has not been publicized.
HipHop DX sends their condolences to the family members and the community affected by the fire.
If you would like to help, donations can be sent to 128 North 7th Street, Darby, PA, 19023 or call 267-499-7298.
