The turkey drive was held this Monday (November 22) in front of the Toyota Center, the home of the Rockets. The guests were served a Thanksgiving meal per vehicle and turkeys were distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Thanksgiving dinner included food items provided through the 50 Cent’s G-Unity Foundation, Kroger and the Spec’s store, and the chance to purchase tickets for a scheduled Rockets in a home match. The food items were only available to only the initial 1,000 cars, which meant that only those in need were invited to bring their vehicles for the dinner.
“I simply would like them to enjoy their Thanksgiving and have fun and have fun. You know what I’m talking about?” 50 told KPRC at the time of the event. “I’m actually to this event in style. My kids have been making their way through the process of putting it in place, and I need to catch up and complete more effort to ensure they don’t be looking at me as if I brought them here first.”
50 Cent’s holiday giveaway is only a tiny part of the ongoing collaboration between the Rockets and the G-Unity Foundation and the team’s Clutch City Foundation, which collaborate to bring together a wide array of community-based projects.
Since the move into Houston from January 20, 2021 the G-Unit mogul has been assisting the city in many ways. He’s already contributed for the Toy Drive of NAACP Houston’s Christmas Eve Super Feast, the Houston Symphony and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
“This event was awesome The G-Unity Foundation and it’s the Houston Rockets, Kroger, and Spec’s” 50 was added to Instagram. “BOOM[.] Helping Houstonians Have a Merry Thanksgiving.”
With Thanksgiving just close to us, 50 Cent isn’t the only rapper to participate in a drive to collect turkeys. In the past month, Lil Tjay and Ice Spice organized the fans with a food drive in their hometown of Bronx, New York.
In the video clip shared on the internet, fans surrounded the youngsters while they distributed turkeys to nearly 150 local families and took photos with guests.
“This is a shit look active out there… We’re in The Bronx. You can trust me, I’ve got lots of turkeys to hand out. Police is a joke. The son of mine Ice is here. If you’re not here, pop out, however,” Tjay said before striking at his opponents. “I am aware that the Opps are mad they’re not capable of doing this.”
In addition, NBA YoungBoy has teamed up together with NAACP to distribute 500 turkeys for free and an open-to-all Thanksgiving dinner in his home town from Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Monday (November 21).
