E-40 has donated $10,000 to The Salvation Army in his hometown, Vallejo, California, according to timesheraldonline.com. The rapper explained that his donation stemmed from childhood experiences with the organization. 

“My mother and father divorced when I was [eight],” E-40 said. “They did what they could do. When times got heavy, me and mom had to come over here [to the Salvation Army]…I knew I had to come out to my soil. I’m trying to give back.”

E-40 also spoke about how giving back is something everyone can do.

“I’m no better than anyone else,” 40 said. “I’m just playing my part. I can’t save the world, but I do what I can to save my community.”
