Gunna followed through with his intention to give back to families in his community despite some changes to his plan. The rapper, his Great Giveaway Family Foundation and Goodr had teamed up to throw their annual giveaway at a Walmart in Atlanta, but the retail corporation canceled the event one day before it was slated to go down.
According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the South Fulton Police Department “had been working with Walmart to address security for the gift card giveaway” on Saturday when the department was informed that it was no longer taking place. A Facebook post directed people to the company for additional questions on the cancellation.
Gunna and Goodr’s giveaway, initially scheduled for Sunday, December 18, was intended to provide gift cards to 1,000 families who filled out preregistration forms. When the event was canceled, they decided they’d send the cards to those families since they could no longer distribute them in person.
“It was essential to Gunna, his Great Giveaway Family Foundation, and Goodr to make sure that families received the assistance promised to them no matter what,” Goodr CEO Jasmine Crowe said in a statement. “We contacted all 1,000 families this week. Working with the City Of South Fulton, every family received their gift cards and gifts.”
