TSR Positive Images: School systems were some of the most neglected parts of our society, and the pandemic has definitely put pressure on districts to provide resources for students! With the help of another Philly native, Meek Mill is working to change that.
According to TMZ, 76ers partners Meek and Michael Rubin have set up their own scholarship fund to help disadvantaged youth in Philadelphia! The fund is expected to help nearly 1,000 students in the Philly school system and is expected to be distributed immediately.
A source close to the situation tells TMZ that the money will allow students from poverty-stricken families to attend private schools across the city and provide virtual learning students with access to all the devices they may need, including laptops, tablets and WiFi.
Meek Mill has been a major advocate for Philadelphia students and is a big advocate of social justice across the city. Despite his best efforts, Meek was recently criticized for offering local rapper record deals to stop the violence!
Meek was also in the hot seat a few days ago after seeing a group of boys selling water on the side of the road and giving them $ 20 to share. People criticized his giving, saying he could definitely have given more, and even bought their entire water cooler to support him.
Now that Meek has put his money where his mouth is with this scholarship fund, fans can see things differently.
