Travis Scott might be busy getting his multiple bags, but that hasn’t stopped him from giving back to his community.

According to The Houston Chronicle, he donated $100,000 to Workshop Houston, a non-profit organization based in his hometown. Workshop Houston is one of the many non-profits that participated in Scott’s Astroworld festival this past year. The organization aims to provide youth with creative, technical, and educational resources throughout Houston’s Third Ward.

According to Workshop Houston, some of Scott’s donation will go to programs, including one in which local students recreate former first lady Michelle Obama’s Milly gown, which she wore in her official White House portrait painted by Kehinde Wiley. The org will also host a drone racing competition with entries created by local student teams at Space Center Houston.

This isn’t the first time that Trav has gotten recognition from his home city. Last year he received a key to Missouri City, Texas. On that same day during the city’s annual Black History Month celebration, February 10 was named “Travis Scott Day.” He’s also played in James Harden’s Charity basketball and softball games during JH-Town Weekend.

Oh yeah, and don’t forget that time he casually handed out $100,000 via Cash App to fans who tweeted the lyrics of the AstroWorld album at him. Shout out to La Flame for never forgetting his humble beginnings.
