Perry’s Tyler Perry Studios hosted its #TPSGiving food giveaway, where cars are invited to drive-up and receive a meal. This year volunteers dressed in protective gear were prepared to hand out food and gift cards to the first 5,000 cars that arrived.
“Although we wish that we could feed everyone in need, we will close the line at the 5,000th family,” the studio said in an announcement for the event.
Perry is known for his charitable endeavors.
Perry’s efforts have also helped keep people employed during the pandemic.
“It feels like an incredible blessing that I work for someone who made provisions and made sure that we were safe,” Smith said. “I feel pride in being part of history the second go around, because the first time was him opening the studio.”
