Floyd Mayweather gave back to the community with reports that he had helped the people of Maui, who had been impacted by wildfires, with some necessary food and shelter.
TMZ reported that Mayweather had taken it upon himself to ensure that he had paid “for almost 70 families to fly to safety, but also providing them with a place to stay, food to eat, and clothing to wear.”
And at a time when the fires have impacted numerous people, any intervention from Mayweather and others will be welcomed.
