Missy Elliott Donates $50,000 To Virginia Families Facing Evictions

Missy Elliott has tapped into her charitable side and donated a sizeable sum to aid families who are on the verge of eviction in her hometown of Portsmouth, Virginia.

According to The Virginian-Pilot, Missy gave $50,000 to the Portsmouth Redevelopment and Housing Authority (PRHA) on Tuesday (October 17).

Alisa Winston, who serves as director of PRHA, said the five-figure donation will go toward paying off the past-due rent of 26 families.

During a ceremony, Missy said that she’d been brainstorming different ways to celebrate the monumental day.

“Instead of it being a celebration of Missy Elliott — you know, about me — I wanted to give back and let that be the celebration of Missy Elliott, just to show that I love everybody out here,” she said. “Just know that P-Town is with me no matter where I go.”

“I love my city. I love my state. I love everything about it,” she added. “Everything about Missy comes from here — the hospitality, the humility, the confidence. If you mess with me, it’s a problem. We sweet, but don’t try us.”
