Gunna visited his old school, Ronald McNair Middle School, to surprise students with a gift in partnership with Atlanta-based non-profit organization Goodr, to open Gunna’s Drip Closet and Goodr Grocery Store. The store allows students to grab food, toiletries, shoes and clothes for free.
“These are things I said I was gonna do when I got in a position to do it so I just gotta follow that,” Gunna said. “I want them to learn that you can be anyone you want to be, you can be anything you want to be because look at me. I did what I wanted to do and I went to the same school that they went to.”
Goodr is a social impact startup aiming to reduce food waste and end hunger through technology.
September 16th was recently made Gunna Day in South Fulton, Georgia.
The city's mayor, William “Bill” Edwards, honored him with his very own day, handing Gunna a declaration proclamation to acknowledge his success and impact on South Fulton.
The declaration highlights Gunna's achievements as an artist, influencer and fashion inspiration after overcoming a difficult childhood.
“Just like the Phoenix, rising above the ashes of adversity, Gunna is committed to giving back to the community that raised him, buffered him, sheltered him and supported him by creating Gunna’s Drip Closet and Goodr Grocery Store which is set to provide students of McNair Middle School with access to free meals, clothing and toiletries for years to come." The honorable proclamation reads. “Since 2018, through his Gunna Great Giveaway Foundation, Gunna has exhibited his efforts to serve the greater good, by hosting free grocery stores in the community and providing over $100,000 in gift cards to families during the pandemic and supplied thousands of families in Houston, Texas with household items after the 2021 historic winter storms.”
