Vic Mensa’s SaveMoneySaveLife foundation is preparing to help those who need it most during this history-making arctic blast, which is expected to produce wind chills in the double-digit negative temperatures in some areas of the Midwest.
According to a post uploaded to Mensa’s Instagram page on Jan. 29, the non-profit is accepting sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, food and more to help the homeless citizens of the Windy City, who Mensa says could die due to being outside in the record-setting cold.
“Chicago, as you know it’s cold as f**k right now,” he said. “What you may not be thinking about is those who may not have a roof over their head to protect them from this weather.”
“As the temperature drops to beneath thirty degrees in the next two days, people will die,” he continues. Mensa says that for the next two days, the foundation is planning on taking donations in order to feed 50 Chicagoans three meals a day “while the weather is at its worst.”
Mensa’s caring nature through the organization hasn’t gone unnoticed. SMSL held an event aiming to provide Chicago’s domestic violence shelters with feminine products for the winter season. This past Christmas, he reportedly donated shoes to children in Chicago’s Department Of Children and Family Services’ care.
