During the 2011 holiday season, Fabolous decided to give back. Teaming up with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez and the New York Giants’ Ahmad Bradshaw, Fabolous held a coat drive for the less-fortunate people of New York City. Fabolous held the first annual drive through his A Fabolous Way Foundation.
The coat drive received contributions from several big names in hip hop. Contributors included Trey Songz, DMC, of Run-DMC, Ne-Yo, Adreinne Bailon, and Julissa, formerly of BET’s “106 & Park.” Aside from coats, other winter apparel was donated to the drive and helped clothe people in the New York City area.
Fabolous’ month-long coat drive has now ended, with 100,000 coats being collected and distributed throughout New York City. While Fab’s coat dirve has ended, New York Cares will accept donations until December 31.
