The musician’s nonprofit organization joined Hartford Memorial Baptist Church on Wednesday to distribute 100 gift certificates for Meijer retail and grocery stores, along with more than 300 gift baskets. Kid Rock, who was born Robert Ritchie, grew up and lives in suburban Detroit. He and the Kid Rock Foundation have been honored this year for their philanthropic contributions by Goodfellows Detroit and the NAACP’s Detroit branch. Kid Rock is known for dabbling in various musical styles, from hip-hop and hard rock to country and Southern rock.
He recently completed a high profile underplay tour of the U.S. where, in association with a powerhouse group of local Detroit business people, more than $375,000 was donated to local charities via his Kid Rock Foundation.
