Beyoncé returned to Houston, her hometown, recently, with her daughter Blue Ivy to offer support for those affected by the damage done by Hurricane Harvey. The mother and daughter helped out at a feeding station by handing out meals of rice and beans to people in need. The pair spent all day at the station, which resulted in them serving 400 meals to survivors.
The Single Ladies hitmaker was also joined by former Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams. As well as giving out food, they handed out supplies such as diapers and toiletries.
On Friday, Beyoncé and her mother visited St. John’s Church in Houston to speak to a group of Hurricane Harvey survivors where she said the following:
She went on to say, “Houston is my home. I thank God that you’re safe, your children are safe… I just wanna say I love you. I’ve been blessed so that I can bless other people and I ask of God to continue to do that for other people.”
Thanks to everyone who donated to BeyGOOD and contributed to helping so many families in Houston. Thank you Pastor Rudy, Michelle, Ingrid and all at St. John's Church. Thank you to Trae Tha Truth and your crew. Y'all are so consistently dedicated to our community. Thank you!!
