Drake Helps the Homeless in Portland

Feeling charitable in the season of giving, Drake made a generous donation to the Union Gospel Mission of Portland on Wednesday (December 4).

According to Stacy Kean of the Mission, "Drake was in Portland for his concert. He was checking out the nightlife. While he was out, he saw we had our emergency cold weather shelter open. He came in and talked to our overnight supervisor, asking, 'Hey, what's going on here?'"

She continued, "Our dining room is packed with people sleeping on mats. We sleep 50-60 people in the dining room during cold weather...when the temperature drops below 32 degrees."

Afterwards, the "Started from the Bottom" singer decided to help out, making a cash donation to the organization so they could provide more meals, blankets, sleeping bags, and socks for those in need.
