Kevin Hart Gives Computers to City Kids

One of Philly’s favorite native sons is giving back to the city’s kids.

Actor, comedian and Philly guy Kevin Hart is joining Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter in a visit to four city schools that will highlight Hart's donation of 500 computers. The Scary Movie 4 star of  says in total he is donating around $250,000 to the city on top of the computers.

The city says 300 of the computers will be going to the School District of Philadelphia and 200 to the city Department of Parks and Recreation.

“I'm personally coming to Philly this FRIDAY to visit & talk to the kids at some of the schools that I will be donating computers to #Philly,” Hart tweeted earlier in the week.

Nutter is scheduled to speak at the first visit to John F. Hartranft School in north Philadelphia on Friday morning.

The pair will also go to Allen M. Stearne Elementary School in northeast Philadelphia and Overbrook Elementary School in northwest Philadelphia.

They will then attend an afternoon pep rally at Tilden Middle School in southwest Philadelphia.

For Hart, a George Washington High School grad, it’s his way to give back to the city he loves.

"My city made me who I am today and for that I am thankful," Hart posted to Instagram. "I will make it my priority to help my city get out of this debt. PHILLY UNTIL I DIE."
