Charlamagne “Tha God”, co-host of nationally syndicated radio show The Breakfast Club, and his non-profit organization Third Eye Awareness are hosting their annual charity event on Saturday, August 17th from, 12pm to 4pm. This year’s back-2-school giveaway will take place at Moncks Corner Recreation Complex on 418 E. Main Street. There will be free school supplies including backpacks and food including fried fish and shrimp while supplies last.
Charlamagne grew up in Moncks Corner and has shared in previous interviews the importance of giving back to his community. He’s asserted, “Why wouldn’t you come back to the place that made you who you are? They raised you.”
This is one of many charitable contributions Charlamagne has made to his home state of SC. He also hosts an annual Turkey Giveaway in Moncks Corner giving away hundreds of free turkeys to the community.
Radio and television have allowed Charlamagne the platform to effect massive change and influence. “As a radio personality, I’m a public servant, we all should be public servants in some way shape or form. I feel like my soul purpose is to be of service to others,” Charlamagne has been quoted saying.
