The coronavirus pandemic isn’t stopping Kanye West from donating to various charities in his hometown of Chicago and in Los Angeles, helping to provide thousands of meals to those affected by the widespread outbreak.

In his hometown, Ye donated to We Women Empowered, an organization ran by Josephine “Mother” Wade that has been delivering three meals a day to those individuals during the pandemic, specifically supporting elderly citizens on Chicago’s South Side. The charity works in congruence with Josephine’s Southern Cooking, another one of Wade’s organizations that features a fully operating food delivery service center, with its drivers offering additional wellness services to seniors.

“Today when I got that call, that Kanye West wanted to help the elderly in Chicago and he chose his hometown in the South Side, his old neighborhood, I was beyond words,” Wade shared after hearing about West’s donation. “And in one phone call, in an instant today, our world was changed.”

West equally donated to Echo Park-based charity The Dream Center in Los Angeles, an organization that’s open seven days a week, providing a “drive-thru” meal service for those affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The non-profit feeds approximately 7,000 meals per day and is expected to ramp its output up to 9,000 meals per day soon.

For those looking to join West in helping those in need, donate to or volunteer at We Women Empower, Josephine’s Southern Cooking, and The Dream Center.
