Bobby Shmurda donates 2,000 backpacks full of supplies to schools in New York
Bobby Shmurda helps New York students with a generous gift. The rapper recently donated 2,000 backpacks to several New York-area schools.
“Please don’t give your moms any trouble this year,” he told the lucky students in a video. “And please don’t give your teachers any trouble this year.”
“I mean I’m proud of all of you for your courage, your strength and your academic perseverance,” he continued. “Always remember that you are unstoppable. You can do whatever you want if you believe in it. “
By Complex, the backpacks were delivered to PS 268 Emma Lazarus; PS 219 Kennedy King and PS 92 Adrian Hegeman in Brooklyn; Eagle Academy for Young Men III in Queens; PS 76 A. Philip Randolph in Harlem; and Health Opportunities High School in the Bronx.
Donation recipients were blessed with pencils, pens, notebooks, files and more with their new backpacks.
While Bobby’s latest move targets New York students, he’s no stranger to charitable acts. In June, he hosted a “Father’s Day Brunch” for underserved families in Brooklyn.
As previously reported by REVOLT, the emcee “Hot Nigga” blessed fathers and their children with haircuts so they could “feel their best.” Children were given a plethora of toys, including free game consoles, board games, action figures, jump ropes and soccer balls, while dads were given clothes and books.
Additionally, Bobby and his team ensured that everyone at the event was well fed. He treated them to a Caribbean brunch, which included dishes like jerk salmon, curried chickpeas, baked chicken, macaroni and cheese and more on the menu. The remains were donated to the CAMBA Men’s Shelter in Brooklyn.
