DETROIT – Eminem and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced Friday they were donating $1 million to help Detroit families in need.

It’s not the first time Eminem has made donations to aid those affected by coronavirus. In April, the musician donated a rare pair of shoes to raise money for the COVID-19 solidarity response fund.

Through Eminem’s Marshall Mathers Foundation, Eminem said he was donating $250,000 to the city. Dorsey said he would donate an additional $750,000.

The announcements were made on Lil Wayne’s Young Money Radio show.

The city of Detroit, as of May 9, 2020, has 9,709 confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Anyone who believes they might have coronavirus should follow the CDC guidelines. Michigan.gov has a list of resources available to those concerned about COVID-19.
