Tyler Perry is kicking off Thanksgiving week the right way. He opened up his Atlanta studio for four hours to give needy families five thousand meals with a combination of food boxes and gift cards for Krogers, a local supermarket chain.
The employees of Tyler Perry Studios donated their time to volunteer and hand out the goods at the TPS Giving event. Cars lined up over 12 hours before the start, which was drive-thru thing thanks to COVID-19. All the workers were tested ahead of time.
According to an insider, “Tyler was heartbroken seeing people all over the country stand in line for food so he decided he wanted to give back to his community in Atlanta.” His hope is that his gesture will encourage his other high-dollar folks to give back during the holiday season this year.
