Megan Thee Stallion is lending a helping hand to her hometown of Houston.
After the city’s recent freeze, the 26-year-old rapper is working with the National Association of Christian Churches (NACC) Disaster Services and U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee to help rebuild the southern city. Specifically, she’s helping to raise funds for senior citizens and single mothers to help rebuild and repair their homes free of charge.
Sharing the news to Instagram, the Houston native invited her fans to join her.
“It is always very important for me to help give back to the city that made me,” she captioned a post with instructions on how to get involved. “I just want to say thank you to everyone who came together with me to help rebuild my hometown.”
In an official statement, she added, “Seeing the devastation and hearing the heartbreaking stories that have surfaced, I knew I had to do something to help my hometown. I am so happy that Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, the NACC and I aligned on the goal of repairing the homes of the elderly and uninsured single moms who are the most vulnerable and often displaced by these kinds of devastating events.”
Megan isn’t alone in her efforts, though. Some of the top tier brands and collaborators she’s worked with have contributed to the cause as well, including Maroon 5, Fashion Nova, Mielle, Revlon, The Coach Foundation, and Dolce and Gabbana.
