Tyler Perry Help Feed 5,000 Families For Thanksgiving


It's the season of giving and over the weekend, Tyler Perry opened up his Atlanta studio for four hours to feed 5,000 families in Atlanta.

“Tyler was heartbroken seeing people all over the country stand in line for food so he decided he wanted to give back to his community in Atlanta,” a source from Perry's team told PEOPLE. “Hopefully this encourages others who are able to, to give back during the holiday season in a year that has been difficult for many.”

PEOPLE reports cars started lining up 12 hours before the start of the event to make sure they were one of the 5,000 families.

Those who helped volunteer during the giveaway event made sure it was a COVID-safe with a drive-through only and masks were required for those coming to pick up the food and gift cards.

What a touching moment from Tyler Perry and his team!
