The G-Unity Foundation Spreads Holiday Cheer Across the Country

Sponsored by The G-Unity Foundation, Inc., its founder 50 Cent and his G-Unit Records recording artists Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, Spider Loc, Mobb Deep, M.O.P., and Olivia, surprised children at three nonprofit organizations across the country, making the holiday season bright and cheerful.

On December 23 in Compton, California, Spider Loc visited a nonprofit that he knows well, the Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum. The Museum’s main purpose is to make aviation accessible to children who lack the access and opportunity to experience such. One hundred children were treated to iPod Shuffles and a party. Spider also presented director Robin Petgrave with a check for $25,000 to support Positive Vibrations, their youth mentoring program.

Eighty-five children at the Springfield Family Inn in Jamaica, New York were surprised when 50 Cent, Olivia, Lloyd Banks, Mobb Deep, M.O.P., and Tony Yayo appeared with plenty of toys, winter coats, hats, and gloves for everyone. And to make the celebration even more joyful, the children were treated to a concert given by the incredible Boys Choir of Harlem. In the spirit of giving, a grant for $25,000 was presented to Homes for the Homeless to fund their Healthy Living Center Project expansion project.

Homes for the Homeless (HFH) is the nation’s largest provider of residential, education and employment training centers-serving over 630 homeless families and over 1,200 homeless children each day at five separate sites across New York City. Dubbed American Family Inns, these sites function as communities of opportunity, carefully integrating a network of on-site education, employment and family support services that address the multiple causes of homelessness.

Last but not least, on December 19 in Nashville, Tennessee, Young Buck visited seventy children at the Fannie Battle Day Home for Children. The children received toys and were treated to a pizza party. On top of that, the organization was greatly surprised when Young Buck presented a check for $25,000.

“I was very, very taken back,” executive director Sara Longhini said. “It’s an amazing donation for us and our families.” The grant will support establishing a new Infant/Toddler Program, or their Summer Enrichment Program.

A grant of $10,000 was also awarded to the Boys Choir of Harlem, Inc. The G-Unity Foundation previously supported the Choir and its Choir Academy with a grant of $150,000.
