Rich Polk/Getty Images for Capitol Music GroupCEO Pierre “P” Thomas and his label Quality Control Music are continuing their efforts to give back to their community in Metro Atlanta, helping families in need during this critical time of economic uncertainty.
With support from both his label and GOODR, which helps distribute unused food to the hungry that would otherwise be wasted, Thomas will provide 1,000 Atlanta families with groceries.
Thousands of people are out of work and unemployment applications last week exceeding three million because of the COVID-19 coronavirus. “This Global Pandemic has majorly affected the Global economy that the US was not prepared for,” P wrote on Instagram. “We’re not in a time for us to be greedy, rather we’re in a time to pay-it-forward any way we can. We see you and are here for you.”
Each day up to 100 residents of the Metro Atlanta area will be chosen to receive donations. Deliveries begin on Monday, March 30, and families with children and seniors are encouraged to submit a request form today.
The partnership was announced just hours after P revealed on Twitter that he wanted to help supply families in Atlanta with essentials like groceries, diapers and formula milk for babies. “It’s a rough time but we will get through this,” he tweeted.
The move was highly supported in the comments by other Atlanta natives like Gucci Mane, DC Young Fly, and Trouble.
Thomas founded Quality Control Music with Kevin “Coach K” Lee in 2013, signing Migos, Lil Baby, City Girls, Lil Yatchy and a roster of chart-topping artists.
