Exclusive: Sean “Diddy” Combs Helps Save Boys & Girls Club Of Harlem, New York

(AllHipHop News) Hip-Hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs is being credited with “saving” The Boys and Girls Club of Harlem New York, with a charitable donation that will help the organization’s operational budget.

The Boys and Girls Club of Harlem announced that Diddy gave a “remarkable” donation to the organization that helps mentor and guide young people in the community, regardless of their circumstances.

The Boys and Girls Club of Harlem, New York, was facing budgetary constraints due to shifts in federal, state and private funding.

According to Willie C. Bentley, Jr., Board Member and Resource Development Chair of The Boys and Girls Club of Harlem, Combs’ donation came at exactly the right time.

“Mr. Combs’ contribution comes at a time when we were faced with the possibility of eliminating existing programs and/or club sites,” Willie C. Bentley Jr. told AllHipHop.com. “One hundred percent of Mr. Combs’ contribution will go directly to the young people, and provide educational, recreational and social enrichment programs allowing us to move forward as a club, uninterrupted.”

Sean “Diddy” Combs grew up in Harlem, and has often credited the local community with influencing his artistic vision.

  • Don’t be fooled by “charity”. This is more for publicity than to help anyone. Charity can’t fix the Black community which is in shambles. How come when these artists give back, they never help those who can help other people? Why not help someone Black start a business?

    Since Diddy’s so damn rich, why hasn’t he started a distribution label? He has to beg the white man like a slave. {{-_-}}

      distribution co?  that was a good one homey – suge, jprince tried that shyt bout 10 yrs ago – them crackers shut that shyt the phuck down…. why would they give any BLACKMAN a distribution deal that would ultimately cut the WHITE RECORD LABELS out of a cont. profit.  On the cool, i dont think they would even give BARACK his own dist. company.  CHARITY DOES FIX THE BLACK COMMUNITY – AND THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLLUB offers SYLVAN LEARNING TUTORING, food, sports, activities, computers, books not to mention the school supplies they give out for free.
       
      PUBLICITY or not – somebody’s child IS GOING TO BENEFIT FROM PUFF’S DONATION/WRITE OFF … and this message is CO-SIGNED BY “DENZEL WASHINGTON” niggah!

      • If charity fixes the Black community, TAKE A LOOK AROUND. It sure hasn’t done a good job.

        And why should we give up so easily just because the white man shut you down ONCE? If at first you don’t succeed, TRY AGAIN. The key is not to include the white man to begin with. Power is not GIVEN. It is CREATED and/or TAKEN. {{-_-}}

  • I’ll say it for you, “Sen$ei, you’re just a HATER!” There. Satisfied? {{-_-}}

    you don’t think the Boys and Girls Club helps anyone? it’s sad when you can’t even recognize when someone does a good thing for their community.  i think it’s a great thing what he did, regardless of any agenda, to whatever extent, he may or may not have had. 

    • BUSINESSES help people much more effectively than a Boys & Girls Club. Hard for a young Black teen to get in trouble when he has a JOB. {{-_-}}

  • Good look for Diddy. 
    He’s a sucker, but at least he’s making amends …or trying.

    At GMS:
    Only 5? distribution licenses in the country & it’s that way so that they can bombard our youth with BS subliminal messages teaching them to self destruct as they Willie Lynch themselves to the music they bumping.

    Can’t blame Diddy for that.
    Publicity stunt? Probably…& a tax write off as well, but at least the Boys Club & kids got something out of it.
    Damned if he does & damned if he doesn’t.
    Good point though , a grant isn’t residual & the club will be in trouble again.
    Give a man a fish & you feed him for a meal…teach him to fish & you feed him for a life time.

    All & all , still a good look for Diddy & the Club!

    charity aint nothing but a hand out – and it wont fix everything…so in that sense you’re right but to suggest it doesnt help is ridiculous.  its charity that feeds kids FREE food after school that they might no get at home …  charity provides after school programs to kids who may not been able to attend … charity donations that go out to families in need during american holiday’s – its charities that donate school vans, buses, cpu, monitors, equipment, etc to under privileged kids who can someday grow up to own their own and might be able to provide CHARITY to somebody else in need.  Are you aware that the BOYS AND GIRLS club is a NON PROFIT organization so THEM just opening the doors to the public is considered CHARITY.
