Rapper T.I. recently gave away over one thousand turkeys as part of his philanthropic endeavors in Atlanta ahead of Thanksgiving. The 41-year-old hosted the 16th annual turkey giveaway under the auspices of his charity organization Harris Community Works.

The self-proclaimed “King of da South” organized the event outside Jackson Memorial Baptist Church. The initiative was aimed at providing food to the underprivileged and senior citizens in Atlanta’s Westside.

Also assisting the efforts were Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Councilwoman Andrea Boone and comedian DC Young Fly. The “About The Money” singer was joined by close friends and family members as well as volunteers.

Several renowned food chains such Chick-fil-A, Humana and Papa John’s also contributed to the cause, with the latter donating a $10,000 check to help fund Harris Community Work’s local efforts.

Earlier this month, the rapper announced his decision to launch an affordable housing scheme in his old Bankhead neighborhood. The community is expected to feature 143 units, a community garden, community center and greenhouse.
