The “Body” rapper has joined forces with Lee and executives from the National Association of Christian Churches (NACC) Disaster Services to provide help to senior citizens and single moms whose homes were impacted during the deadly winter storms and deep freeze that struck the state last month (February 2021).
The initiative will be backed by heads at brands like Revlon, Fashion Nova, and Coach, as well as her label 300 Entertainment, and Dolce & Gabbana. Her “Body” music video co-star Taraji P. Henson and Maroon 5 have also been listed as donors to the fund, which will continue on for the next two years.
In a statement released by the superstar, she wrote, “Seeing the devastation and hearing the heartbreaking stories that have surfaced, I knew I had to do something to help my hometown.”
She continued, “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.”
Along with Megan, fellow Houston-natives Travis Scott and Beyoncé have both made efforts aimed at helping relieve some of the disasters.
