Gunna has partnered with Goodr to open a grocery and apparel store at his Atlanta middle school at no cost to students and their families.
The Drip Closet store will be located in Ronald E. McNair Middle School where the rapper attended with his four brothers as a child.
The store will offer shoes, clothing, food, toiletries and other necessities to those in need.
Atlanta news station 11 Alive reported the store will benefit 900 students and their families for years to come. The store will be restocked weekly, and families can also go online for items their child needs allowing them to obtain a ticket for school pickup.
Jasmine Crowe, CEO of Goodr, shared with CBS 46 the impact the store will have on the South Fulton residents.
“He’s providing a way of life for these families and this is something that is legendary,” said Crowe. “I don’t think anything like this has been done before in the city of Atlanta.”
According to the official website, Goodr aims to solve the hunger crisis with not only resources but also efficient logistics.
“We believe that hunger isn’t a scarcity issue. It’s a logistics issue,” states the company. “Goodr provides a secure ledger that tracks an organization’s surplus food from pickup to donation, delivering real-time social and environmental impact reporting analytics. The Goodr model aims to provide a triple-win solution by improving an organization’s bottom line through charitable tax donations, reducing its greenhouse emissions from land?lls and getting its edible surplus food to local communities in need.”
