Fat Joe Donates To Bronx Apartment Fire Relief Fund, Asks Others To Help
Fat Joe always shows love to the Bronx and stays true to his community. Being a native of the borough, he’s always trying to help whichever way he can. That’s why recently, the icon rapper partnered with the New York City Mayor’s Fund to launch a relief fundraiser. The fundraiser will help individuals impacted by a tragic fire on Sunday.
In the Bronx, the Twin Parks North West building caught on fire. It left 19 people dead and 32 with life-threatening injuries.
Twin Parks North West is a budget-friendly apartment complex with 120 units in the Fordham Heights community.
Additionally, Fat Joe has garnered financial contributions from Jay-Z and DJ Khaled.
He announced the news about the fundraiser on Instagram.
“I need all my people worldwide to come together for the families devastated by the fire in the Bronx,” he wrote. “I’m donating, and I’m asking everyone that has a Heart to donate.”
He added, “These people are mostly immigrants that have nowhere to go. They lost everything. It’s 10 degrees in the Bronx today! WE NEED YOUR HELP! Donate to this link: https://fatjoe.me/donatebronx.”
The rapper further expressed his sincerity on Instagram live at 7 p.m. ET. In addition, he hosted an emergency Bronx Relief Special during his time online, urging people to donate.
