Morgan Wallen has officially created a new charitable foundation titled More Than My Hometown. The launch of this foundation follows Wallen’s return to the spotlight after speaking out on the video that surfaced of him using a racial slur.
As stated on the foundation’s official website, the music artist has moved to create this foundation in inspiration of his parent’s recent adoption of Wallen’s now sister, Lacey.
“Since my parents fostered and now officially adopted my sister Lacey, I’ve witnessed what love and care can do for a child that didn’t have it before. She has transformed into a confident, trusting, and happy kid,” said Wallen. “There are many elements that aid in the development and protection of an adolescent’s life, and that is why I created the foundation, so a childs’ resources are not limited due to their circumstances.”
According to the website, More Than My Hometown is centered around four pillars that aid in “opportunity and hope” for young people.
“More Than My Hometown Foundation believes every young person deserves the best chance at a great life, by strengthening and fostering these four pillars: FAMILY, COMMUNITY, GUIDANCE, and LOVE – we open the door for greater opportunity and hope.“
The foundation has set goals in each of these categories to achieve this greater mission.
Wallen’s foundation has stated a plan to help young individuals find a forever home, work with communities to develop after-school programs with community leaders for at-risk youth, make donations of educational technology, musical instruments, and sporting equipment to lower-income communities and orchestrate interactions between children and veteran hospitals.
