Blue Ivy Carter joined her mom, Beyonce, and grandmother, Tina Lawson, for a bit of charity work in Texas this past weekend. The youngster stood alongside her mom’s team, Bey Good, and helped hand out food to the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston.
Bey and Tina took the stage at St. John’s Methodist Church to give the survivors words of encouragement before providing them with hot meals. “Touching moment for me being in St. John’s again with Beyonce,” Tina shared with her Instagram fans. “I remember her singing her first solo there at 14-years-old,” Lawson added. “We got to serve our home girls and guys that were affected by Hurricane Harvey.”
Beyonce’s words were as powerful as her actions as she provided food to thousands who lost everything in the storm. “Thanks to everyone who donated to BeyGOOD and contributed to helping so many families in Houston,” the singer wrote online after the charity event. “Thank you, Pastor Rudy, Michelle, Ingrid and all at St. John’s Church. Thank you to Trae Tha Truth and your crew. Y’all are so consistently dedicated to our community. Thank you!! There is still work to do.”
Blue Ivy was on the frontline at her mom’s giveaway. The youngster helped prepare several meals and handed them to those still recovering from last month’s disastrous storm.
Hurricane Harvey dumped more than 27 trillion gallons of water on Houston and Louisiana, which led to millions being displaced. More than 415,000 victims will need government assistance and at least 30,000 residents require temporary shelter.
Hurricane Harvey was one of the worst storms in the history of the United States. “The word catastrophic does not appropriately describe what we’re facing,” Representative Sheila Jackson Lee told media after the brunt of the natural disaster passed through town. “We just don’t know when it’s going to end,” she added.
Beyonce and other celebrities have devoted millions to the cause of helping Houstonians get back on their feet. Blue Ivy Carter is the ‘Formation’ singer’s oldest child.
