Jack Harlow is donating to a number of civil rights and support for domestic violence victims organizations including AMPED, Center for Women and Families, Grace James Academy and Louisville Urban League & Metro United Way.
“It means everything,” he said. “It’s my foundation. It’s part of my DNA. People joke about how often I reference my home, but it’s a huge part of my identity and I want you to think of Louisville when you think of me. My career feels like a mission that’s bigger than me.”
Harlow wants to provide the right example and shine a light Louisville for all of the kids looking up to him.
“I know there’s a kid in the city with headphones on, getting off the bus, walking home from school — listening to my music, watching my interviews, reading these words right now —that feels like this same dream is possible for him,” Harlow explained. “I want people nationwide to look at Louisville as an important and cultural city.”
Earlier this year, he donated new uniforms and softball equipment to a local Special Olympics.
