Offset scores the key to Gwinnett County at his inaugural toy giveaway

Offset hosts toy giveaway in Gwinnett County

Atlanta rapper Offset was honored this holiday season with the key to Gwinnett County during his inaugural Offset Toy Giveaway. Offset and his former Migos bandmates were raised in Gwinnett, and the rapper was in his hometown on Dec. 23 to provide gifts to underserved youth.

The key was given to him by David Still, the mayor of Lawrenceville, in honor of his work with children throughout the county.

“I just wanted to give back to my community,” Offset told attendees, according to NME. “Thanks to all the kids for always supporting me and always listening to me and always just being there for me, you know? Y’all hold me up. You know we’ve been going through a tough time, but God is good.”

On Nov. 1, Atlanta and music fans around the world were rocked by the news that Offset’s bandmate and cousin Takeoff was fatally shot in Houston, Texas, following a private party at a downtown bowling alley.

The charity event was one of Offset’s first public appearances since Takeoff’s death. The rapper also recently returned to the stage, performing Migos’ hits at a club in Miami earlier this month.

“I like to see when celebrities give back to the community, and you know, do their best to make sure that the kids get where they need to go,” the rapper told FOX 5.
