On August 2nd, Shanti Das (The Hip-Hop Professional) and friends held the 3rd annual Backpack Blessings Back to School supply drive at the Walmart on MLK in Atlanta, GA. Lots of people in the Atlanta community and entertainment industry came out to support the drive including: Demetria McKinney, Havoc Jones, Kris Kelli and Block ENT, Mishon, Jamille Bradfield and family, Crystal Betts, Bryan & Angela Williams, Lorraine Robertson and family, and more! Special thanks to Quincy Jones of Walmart and the entire team, Reggie Rouse/V-103, Pepsico, Monique Johnson, And Korrie Payne for helping to make the drive a big success!
The backpacks and supplies were delivered to the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classes of Bethune Elementary School. Shout out to the Raising Expectations Organization for connecting us with the school.
Being able to serve and give back to the community is truly a BLESSING!
