It was not a typical school day for the students attending McNair Middle School one recent afternoon as Atlanta rapper Gunna made a surprise appearance to share exciting news, reports Afro Tech.

Thanks to him and Goodr founder Jasmine Crowe, more than 900 students at his childhood school will now have access to an exclusive grocery and clothing store, Gunna’s Drip Closet, in which every item will be available free of charge.

“He’s providing a way of life for these families and this is something that is legendary,” Crowe told CBS 46. “I don’t think anything like this has been done before in the city of Atlanta.”

In addition to support from heavy hitter Gunna, the closet was built in three days thanks to additional help from Footlocker and Reebok, and Goodr. Families can select food, clothing and hygiene products through Goodr’s application and website. All all products will be restocked weekly.

“This is things I said I was gonna do when I got in a position to do it so I just gotta follow that,” Gunna said.
