E-40 Drops Five Figures To Help Local Salvation Army

(AllHipHop News) Rapper E-40 may help a struggling community center make it through 2017, thanks to a five figure donation.

E-40 recently donated $20,000 to the Salvation Army, which is over $40,000 behind last year’s budget.

According to the Mercury News, the 49-year-old rapper has fond memories of the local Salvation Army in Vallejo, where he and his family would stand in line for toys during hard times.

“Knowing how many families they can feed, helping single parents and whatnot, I’m glad to be a part of it,” E-40 said. “Vallejo is my city and I’m just giving back.”

The rapper is serious about his philanthropic work in Vallejo.

In August, E-40 donated over $25,000 to the students of Franklin Middle School, where he once attended.

E-40 put up the money, after he realized the middle school had lost a grant for school supplies their students needed to start the school year.

Earlier this month, E-40’s latest album The D-Boy Diary Books 1 & 2, landed in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Indie and R&B/Hip Hop Charts.
