Meek Mill played Santa Claus in North Philadelphia for 3,000 kids in the neighborhood where he grew up for Christmas Eve.
Meek selected children from schools that he had a passion for and gave out 500 bikes, shoes, toys and backpacks.
"Just giving back to my neighborhood. This is where I grew up. We are able to do it so we are doing it," said Meek.
Meek, who grew up in a single-parent household, understands that the giveaway may be the only way some kids in North Philadelphia are able to have a good Christmas.
