Kodak Black sponsored a toy drive on Christmas Eve – to the tune of $20,000 – to bring joy to children this holiday season, while he’s in prison.

The rapper provided gift cards, scooters and other toys for 60 families and about 100 kids in Broward County, Florida, which includes Ft. Lauderdale. Some of the children were in foster care. He also paid for their lunch, says  his lawyer, Bradford Cohen.

“It was by invitation only, because we wanted to make sure that everyone got toys, and everyone got candy,” Cohen says in an interview Friday.

Kodak Black collaborated with community activist Francky Pierre Paul to host the drive. The rapper was sentenced to 46 months in prison in 2019 after pleading guilty to federal weapons charges.

“We all remember what it feels like to get a gift,” Paul wrote on Instagram. “Some kids this season won’t have an opportunity to unwrap one this year but we made sure we put smiles and gave hope to a few families and kids today. @kodakblack it’s all UP from here king!”
