Master P Donates to New Orleans Seniors Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Master P is giving back to his hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana.

In an interview with TMZ on Tuesday, the “Make Em Say Uhh!” rapper revealed he and his foundation, Team Hope Nola, are donating hand sanitizer and offering free deep house cleanings to anyone over 60 years old in the Big Easy.

The sanitizer comes from the musician’s family-owned business, Master Clean Life, which also produces hand soap, multi-surface spray, air freshener, and other home products.

While speaking to TMZ, the No Limit Records founder expressed his concern for the elderly, who are particularly vulnerable during this time .

“My thing is, a lot of people forget about the elderly. A lot of the elderly are the ones that get hit hard [by the coronavirus pandemic.] We are losing a lot of the elderly in the community,” the 49-year-old told the outlet.

To receive these perks, sign up at TeamHopeNola.org and show your ID when contacted.

In addition to helping the elderly, Master Clean Life’s website says that a portion of their proceeds will go towards helping inner-city youth attain higher education, as well as assist the elderly with food, clothing, and medical needs.

In a recent YouTube video posted March 29, employees are seen generously shopping for and then donating groceries to people in local communities.

Master P said in a statement, “The more we make, the more we give. Through these uncertain times, we really wanted to help our elderly get through this. Many of the seniors are not able to get to the stores, they are running out of groceries and resources are low. We just want to do what we can to help them. They took care of us, now it’s our turn to take care of them.”

According to CBS affiliate WWL-TV on Tuesday afternoon, there have been 16,284 reported cases of COVID-19 and 582 reported deaths in New Orleans thus far.
