113852161 Kid Rock Donates 50K To Detroit Organizations

In keeping with maintaining his NAACP status of a good helper in the community, Kid Rock donated $10,000 to five community organizations in order to fulfill a promise he made at the recent Fight for Freedom Fund dinner where he was honored.

Rock, a suburban Detroiter whose real name is Robert Ritchie, presented the checks to leaders of the Mosaic Youth Theater of Detroit, Youthville Detroit, Friends of Belle Isle, Habitat for Humanity and the Detroit Recreation Department.

The money was given by the Kid Rock Foundation, based in Clarkston, Michigan. “This city and the surrounding areas have given me a lot in the course of my ascension to be where I’m at today,” Rock said. “This is just a start.”

The NAACP’s decision to honor Rock at its May dinner caused some controversy because he sometimes uses the Confederate battle flag as a backdrop at concerts. But Detroit’s Mayor Dave Bing said Rock works hard for the beleaguered city.
