Griselda rapper Conway the Machine has partnered with FYP clothing to sponsor a Thanksgiving turkey drive and giveaway earlier today (Monday, November 23rd) for Buffalo residents who are experiencing food insecurity.
The distribution started at 10:00 am was given out on a first-come-first-served basis ending at 2 PM.
The emcee personally gave out the holiday bird and other non-perishable foods at the FYP flagship store on 452 Amherst Street.
In addition to the meals, the collective distributed (personal protection equipment) PPE such as masks, gloves, and sanitizing products to anyone who pops out.
This is not the first time that Conway, who is a local artist from the city, has given back to his community. Just a day before this event, he hosted MACHINESGIVING, an event where he partnered with Drumwork Music at the Oakk Room.
The 100 meals were furnished by Chef Rob and distributed using a contactless pick-up model. This event actually collected donations of winter outer gear (hats and gloves).
His work has been acknowledged by Legislator April Baskin. In September, she recognized him with a proclamation for the many charitable services and donations to front-line and essential workings.
