T.I., the multi-talented artist and philanthropist, recently made a significant impact with the 8th Annual Holiday Caravan organized by Harris Community Works, his nonprofit organization, Us or Else.
Demonstrating a deep commitment to community well-being, T.I. personally distributed gifts and shared valuable insights with attendees during the week-long event.
The festivities kicked off on December 13 at DTLR, Camp Creek Marketplace in Atlanta. Beneficiaries from the Next Level Boys Academy diversion program were given the opportunity to shop for clothing, making this experience their Christmas celebration. Gary Davis, Founder and CEO of the Academy, expressed gratitude, stating, “T.I. and Harris Community Works have been steadfast supporters, and we appreciate their ongoing contributions.”
In addition to the shopping spree, the young men were gifted Hawks drawstring bags and tickets to a Skyhawks game, courtesy of the Atlanta Hawks organization.
Continuing the charitable mission, on December 15, the caravan visited My Sister’s House, a shelter for homeless women and families affiliated with the Atlanta Mission. T.I. and his wife, Tameka engaged in breakout sessions for teens and mothers, offering valuable advice and support.
Katrina Dangsm, Director of Program Support Services at the Atlanta Mission, emphasized the positive impact, saying, “Harris Community Works’ Christmas gifts allow our children to feel safe and dream child-sized dreams.”
T.I. encapsulated the spirit of the event, stating, “When we have community partners like Harris Community Works come in and give Christmas gifts, it allows our children to feel safe and dream child-sized dreams.” The success of the 8th Annual Holiday Caravan reflects T.I.’s unwavering dedication to fostering generosity and community spirit.
