Bobby Shmurda donated 2,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to several schools in New York City. The backpacks will help elementary, middle and high school students in need.
Shmurda also donated pencils, pens, pencil cases, notebooks, folders, highlighters and many other items. As part of the donation, the Brooklyn native also recorded a special video message that aired for schools.
Bobby sent his team to deliver the items to the following schools in Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and Harlem:
- PS 268 Emma Lazarus (Brooklyn Elementary School)
- PS 219 Kennedy King (Brooklyn Elementary School)
- PS 92 Adrian Hegeman (Brooklyn Elementary School)
- Eagle Academy for Young Men III (all boys in school – Queens Middle to High School)
- PS 76 A. Philip Randolph (Harlem Elementary to Middle School)
- Health Opportunities High School (Bronx High School)
Since his release in February, Bobby’s philanthropic efforts have included a special Father’s Day event for 200 underprivileged families at the Win Shelter in his hometown of Brooklyn. This event featured a special Caribbean-inspired brunch menu that included jerk salmon, curried chickpeas, stewed chicken, macaroni and cheese, and many other meal options.
Last month, Bobby Shmurda returned to music by releasing his new song and video “No Time for Sleep (Freestyle)”. The new drop is Bobby’s first official solo release since being released from prison in February. In the new video, Bobby leads an interrogation and brings video game inspiration to his trip to Brooklyn. You can listen to the song and watch the video below.
