Co-Host of the Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live Michael Che is stepping up to the plate to help out those in need in New York City. The comedian took to his Instagram to express how crazy it is that public housing residents are still be expected to pay rent when people aren't even working right now. He also explained that he's also doing this in the spirit of his grandmother who recently passed away from Coronavirus:
"Its crazy to me that residents of public housing are still expected to pay their rent when so many New Yorker's cant even work. Obviously I can't offer much help by myself, but in the spirit and memory of my late grandmother, I'm paying one months rent for all 160 apartments in the NYCHA building she lived in. I know thats just a drop in the bucket so i really hope the city has a better plan for debt forgiveness for all the people in public housing, AT THE VERY LEAST."
Thank you Michael Che for this act of kindness!
