COMMUNITY OUTREACH: Diddy Saves The Boys & Girls Club Of Harlem

Diddy has come to the rescue in the nick of time.  The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem was in danger of closing down recently until Bad Boy records founder Sean Combs made a generous donation.

As a native of Harlem, it speaks volumes that he was willing to give an unselfish contribution to such an important institution to the community such as the Boys & Girls Club.

The Jr. Board Member and Resource Development Chair of The Boys & Girls Club made a statement in regards to Diddy’s contribution:

“Mr. Combs’ contribution comes at a time when we were faced with the possibility of eliminating existing programs and/or club sites. 100% of Mr. Combs’ contribution will go directly to the young people, and provide educational, recreational and social enrichment programs allowing us to move forward as a club, uninterrupted.”
