Funny man Kevin Hart has decided to give back to his hometown of Philadelphia. The city has been in the news recently for its financial woes, which has resulted in many schools closing and other severe budget cuts.
Hart’s donation of 500 computers to several Philadelphia schools and recreation centers may not solve the city’s problems, but it definitely helps.
Hart attended local public schools before embarking on an entertainment career that includes the 2011 stand-up special “Laugh at My Pain.” He has also hosted MTV’s Video Music Awards and Saturday Night Live. Mayor MIchael Nutter joined Hart on Friday to visit four schools that collectively received 300 laptops. The district has endured severe budget cuts this year, including the closure of about two dozen schools.
The donation allows students to expand their studies and properly prepare for college and their careers. In addition to the donations made to the schools, 27 city centers will house 200 desktop computers.
Kudos to Kevin Hart for giving back.
