21 Savage to Host Annual Issa Back to School Drive for Kids in Atlanta
21 Savage is continuing his streak of philanthropic efforts by hosting his annual Issa Back to School Drive.
In its third year, the back-to-school initiative will not only provide supplies for each students' success but also free hair styling for young girls, fresh cuts for young boys and school uniforms. The one-day event is slated to take place this upcoming weekend, on Aug. 5, in the "Bank Account" rapper's beloved city of Atlanta. This year's event comes in collaboration with the launch of his 21 Savage Bank Account Campaign (also known as the Lead by Example Foundation) which aims to teach children the importance of financial literacy.
"Giving back to where I grew up means a lot to me," 21 told Billboard about the event. "These kids need it and I use to be one of those kids. Being able to see someone from where u from make it and come back and genuine give back will motivate these kids to do the same for their kids and the community," he continued.
The ATL hitmaker is providing quite the example for his younger fans. Last week, 21 generously donated $10,000 to a local Georgia elementary school as a part of his initiative to help fund their anti-bullying campaign.
