According to the Instagram account of Mill’s organization, Reform Alliance, the rapper had given a slew of toys and Christmas gifts to 35 individual families.

“Meek Mill Surprises Philadelphia Families For Christmas

“This week, REFORM founding partner @MeekMill & @dreamchasers surprised 35 Philadelphia families affected by the justice system with laptops, iPads, Xbox consoles, clothing, and other toys and gifts for Christmas.

“Thank you @puma, @gopuff, and DocuVault for your generous support and @pastorcarlday and @aboveallodds__ for helping us give back this holiday season!”

“It’s been a tough year for all of us, but through all the ups and downs, I’ll always do my part to support and give back to the Philly community that raised me,” said Meek told Complex. “I remember not having much growing up, so it’s important to use my platform to give back, especially to the families trying to provide for their kids while also dealing with the criminal justice system.”

Also, according to CBSN Philly, Mill has also donated $30,000 to an organization named Twelve Days of Christmas Inc. The organization was at Paul Robeson High School spreading love and holiday cheer by donating gifts, groceries, and giving a helping hand to economically disadvantaged families.

“It’s just been an amazing experience. I can’t express how proud I am of our school community for coming together to support these families,” said Robeson principal Richard Gordon.

“We’re living out the mission and passion of 12 days of Christmas. We’re providing holiday cheer for those families that are less fortunate,” said 12 days of Christmas Philadelphia Chapter President Stephanie Mays Boyd.
