Texas Rappers Rush To Aid Victims Of Hurricane Imelda
(AllHipHop News) Texas is experiencing yet another natural disaster, this time in the form of a storm named Imelda.
Texas legends Bun B from Port Arthur and Trae Tha Truth from Houston have partnered up to use their platform to help those who were affected by the tropical storm.
On Saturday afternoon, both artists united with Impact Ministries in Beaumont to hand out supplies to all of those in need.
In addition, they served hot meals and packed up vehicle’s with supplies.
Pastor Jay Matthews of Impact Ministries states, "It's a great need here in the city. We're here to serve. We're here to help you.”
Not only did they give out rations, but they went door-to-door to hand them over personally.
Speaking to 12NewsNow, Bun B said, "We don't have a lot but whatever we have, we're here to give it to people.”
Trae Tha Truth adds, “We’re going to take care of Texas.”
This isn’t the first time both rappers have given back to their communities, and certainly not their last.
Those who missed the last event can attend service at Impact Church today, where the rappers will be handing out supplies again beginning at 10am.
They will be going until all the supplies are gone.
In total, there have been five lives lost so far in the disasters.
“Some people have lost everything and we're here with them to help them rebuild,” Pastor Jay Matthews said.
Prayers to all those affected by Imelda.
