Megan Thee Stallion announces she’s launching a new non profit organization in honor of her late parents, Holly Thomas and Joseph Pete Jr.
The newly launched organization is aimed at uplifting children, women, senior citizen and underserved areas in her hometown of Houston, TX and everywhere else.
“Launching the Pete and Thomas Foundation is easily one of the most significant endeavors that I’ll ever be part of in my career,” Megan declared in a statement released Tuesday. “My family raised me to help others and give back, so I’m incredibly proud to be in a position to accomplish that goal. I have a responsibility to use my platform to make a meaningful impact in the lives of those who may not have access to resources and support services.”
Divided into three parts: Education, housing and health/wellness – The Pete and Thomas organization will will provide scholarships, school supplies, and resources to support underprivileged students; while its housing component will tackle housing related issues for senior citizens, single mothers, and families impacted by financial emergencies and natural disasters will be another priority for the organization.
In terms of promoting and ensuring healthy lifestyles, the Foundation will provide assistance in the form of cancer care and resources for mental health and food insecurity.
Megan celebrated her 27th birthday on Tuesday (February 15) and part of the celebrations involved her blessing a senior citizen, a student, and a cancer survivor some needed financial assistance.
Last year the three-time Grammy winner partnered with Roc Nation to provide a full-tuition, four-year scholarship for a student looking to pursue their education at the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports and Entertainment at Long Island University.
“Getting an education is incredibly important to me,” Megan said at the time. “I still have academic goals that I want to achieve, so if I can use my resources to open doors and create opportunities for at least one student, then it’s a victory. It’s important that we encourage our students to pursue their passions and put them in positions to become the next game changer in whichever fields they choose.”
