The “Level Up” Holiday Drive

John Whitfield Giving: The Level Up Holiday Drive

Atlanta's own Westside comedian, actor, music artist, and philanthropist.

In addition to AREACH programs D.C Young Fly (John Whitfield) helped establish The Level Up Holiday Drive, an annual grant and scholarship giving program offering financial assistance to further academic and entrepreneur success to under resourced youth in the Atlanta communities. This program brings awareness to positive growth through a community event while offering free haircuts, hairstyling, music, food and gift card giveaways!  Our initial year kicked off exceeding our set goal due to D.C Young Fly bighearted actions of passing out cash to families during the community event.

After reviewing the email submissions, AREACH Youth Program chose 3 finalist! These 3 youth will be leveling up their education where scholarships will be applied to SAE Institute, Kennesaw State & Paul Mitchell while also advancing their entrepreneurial endeavors with grant funding. What a way to celebrate the holidays! Check out our video below to witness D.C Young Fly hands on involvement and the excitement this program brings to our community.
