Kardashian-Jenner Family Donates 100 Gourmet, Chef-Prepared Meals to Skid Row
Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble made the donation to the non-profit Red Eye
The KarJenner krew got into the holiday spirit this year.
The famous family, led by momager Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble, surprised the staff at Red Eye — a non-profit organization that focuses on humanitarian work in the entertainment industry — with one special Christmas donation.
According to the organization’s Instagram account, which is run by executive director Justin Mayo, the family donated 100 gourmet, chef-prepared meals to people in need on Skid Row, an impoverished area in downtown Los Angeles, California.
“Got a Christmas call from Jenner / Kardashian Home saying they wanted to donate some food… 100 gourmet chef prepared meals for those on Skid Row,” wrote Mayo. “No publicity. No press release. Simply an amazing family loving their city.”
“They had no clue I’d post this but I felt people should see this side of their hearts,” he added. “Thank you @coreygamble @krisjenner @kendalljenner @kyliejenner @kimkardashian @kanyewest @kourtneykardash @khloekardashian @robkardashian.”
“Their whole family continues to do amazing acts of generosity with our charity Red Eye without ever notifying anyone,” Mayo tells PEOPLE in a statement. “I simply spoke of such because I feel it would be good for people to see this side of this amazing family.”
According to Mayo, the meals donated consisted of wide range of food from fine meats, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, all put together to create the perfect Christmas meal. Even those with a sweet tooth were surprised with decorated gingerbread cookies and frosted snacks.
“This is not even close to the first time they have contributed to those on Skid Row or the kids Red Eye mentors every week in Watts over the past 10 years,” says Mayo, noting the charity’s Red Eye’s Mothers Day Makeovers on Skid Row, which gifts hair, makeup, nails, clothing and cosmetic swag bags for the women living on the streets of Skid Row.
“If it wasn’t for this family’s generosity of over $50,000 in new product for the women, events like Red Eye’s 10 year tradition of such would not be possible,” says Mayo.
Meanwhile, Jenner, 60, has been open about what philanthropy means to her and her family throughout the years, most recently crediting her late ex-husband Robert Kardashian with instilling important values in their kids.
“I just want to say when I met Robert Kardashian, I was 17 years old. He kind of raised me and we had four kids together,” she said during a speech at the 2016 Angel Ball last month, before presenting Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation with a check for $250,000. “One of the things he used to teach me and then passed down to our children was about philanthropy and about giving and about doing it diligently, constantly, joyfully and generously.”
“He taught me and them that no matter what you do in life and what you make, you give back,” she continued. “And you do it without saying a word because that’s what the Bible said. And we did.”
