Master P is doing his part doing the coronavirus pandemic — by taking care of senior citizens during these uncertain times.
The music mogul is handing out hand sanitizer and toilet paper, picking up grocery bills, and even offering sanitizing services.
Master P’s hometown, New Orleans, is getting hit extremely hard by the COVID-19 outbreak. Although officials have issued stay-at-home orders, closed nonessential businesses and schools, and placed restrictions on large gatherings, the death rate for NOLA is double that of New York City right now.
People of all ages can be infected by the new coronavirus. However, older adults are more vulnerable to becoming severely ill. There are more than 70,000 people over the age of 60 in NOLA right now.
But Percy Miller, better known by his stage name Master P, is helping senior citizens stay safe during the outbreak. It is all through his foundation, Team Hope NOLA.
No, Master P isn’t providing health care for senior citizens, but he is doing something else that NOLA’s vulnerable seniors desperately need. The foundation has been making cash donations and buying groceries for vulnerable older adults. They are also providing free toilet paper and two types of hand sanitizers.
“We encourage others that can to help join this movement and not forget about our seniors,” the Team Hope NOLA website reads. “We must abide by the Stay at Home orders, practice Social Distancing and wash our hands frequently to help protect ourselves and one another to overcome this global pandemic.”
On top of that, Team Hope NOLA is hooking up senior citizens with free home sanitation services.
The foundation is sponsored by Master Clean Life, a household cleaning business that was started by Master P’s own sons, Hercy and Mercy Miller. The company makes cleaning products like hand sanitizers, floor cleaners, and disinfectants. Master Clean Life also provides home sanitation services in New Orleans.
To sign up, all they have to do is show their I.D. to prove they are a 60+ senior.
Master P isn’t the only celeb trying to help amid the pandemic.
After she and her son came down with the virus, singer-songwriter Pink donated $1 million to medical causes centered around the coronavirus pandemic.
Even the Kardashian-Jenner clan is getting in on the help. Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian have donated money for relief efforts. Plus, Kylie and mom Kris are donating hand sanitizer to hospitals in southern California.
