The trio didn’t reveal which schools would receive donations, except to say that 110 schools from underserved communities would benefit. Both Mill and Hart are Philly natives and collaborated with Rubin to help marginalized communities in their hometown.
“We care about education a lot,” said Rubin. “I don’t know if you guys saw, Meek and I have been talking a lot about education. We’re actually gonna commit, between Meek and I in Pennsylvania, millions of dollars to Pennsylvania schools this year.”
Mill has partnered before with Rubin. The duo created a $2 million scholarship fund during the coronavirus pandemic to help students survive during the lockdown. The rapper also partnered with Rubin to help families distressed by the broken criminal justice system.
The comedian and rapper partnered with REFORM Alliance to give the VIP treatment to children who have been affected by a justice system that can be unjust. Twenty-five kids were treated to a 76ers game and were able to play on the court. Rubin took to Twitter to highlight REFORM Alliance.
“Was a great day and meant so much to get to spend time with these amazing families and continue to learn about all the issues within the criminal justice system as it relates to probation and parole,” wrote Rubin. “@reform has made great strides already, but there’s so much more work to do!”
“What an incredible night! Incarcerating people for technical probation violations impacts families, and especially children. Thanks again to @sixers, @michael rubin, Meek Mill, @lilbaby4PF, Doc Rivers & others who helped give families in Philly a special day #NightAtTheSixers.”
Hart highlighted the collaboration as well on Twitter with a caption which read, “We love you Philadelphia,” wrote Hart. “So much love for my brothers @michaelrubin & @meekmill …. #StandUpPhilly#CityOfBrotherlyLove.”
Mill also seemingly referenced the donation to Philadelphia schools with his Twitter post. “If you not doing nothing for people,” wrote Mill. “You outta pocket speaking on the ones who do for people!”
