The hip-hop mogul has donated a large contribution to the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem, that reportely was going under. While a representative did not disclose the amount, they did acknowledge that the donation was a huge help at a difficult time. Willie C. Bentley, Jr., board member and Resource Developement Chair, states:
“Mr. Combs’ contribution comes at a time when we were faced with the possibility of eliminating existing programs and/or club sites. 100 percent of Mr. Combs’ contribution will go directly to the young people, and provide educational, recreational and social enrichment programs allowing us to move forward as a club, uninterrupted.”
The club was facing closure due to the current federal, state and private budgets.
