Thursday, November 17, will mark the one-year anniversary of Young Dolph‘s fatal shooting. In honor of the late rapper, his foundation is carrying on his legacy of giving back.
ABC24 reports the IdaMae Family Foundation and Dolph’s family will be celebrating the day, recognized in Tennessee and Georgia as the Adolph “Young Dolph” Thornton Jr. Day of Service, by serving members of the community.
At the Hospitality Hub in Memphis, the foundation will give away free lunch, haircuts and winter materials, including coats, blankets, socks and gloves, while those in Atlanta will receive free haircuts and dinner.
Residents of other communities across the nation will get their trim, as well as access to critical mental health resources, thanks to the foundation’s partnership with The Confess Project of America. And internationally, fans can honor Dolph by engaging in acts of service and posting photos capturing their good deeds alongside #DolphDay and #DolphServiceDay.
“On behalf of the IdaMae Family Foundation and Young Dolph’s family we will continue the legacy of charity, philanthropy, and helping those in need as Adolph Robert Thornton Jr. ‘Young Dolph’ did,” Dolph’s sister Carlisa Brown said in a statement. “His community efforts and traditions will continue and much more. His spirit of giving will continue to live in us as it did in him until his passing.”
