David Banner provided the opportunity for 80 kids to travel from Jackson, Mississippi to Six Flags in Georgia, as part of the Stewpot Neighborhood Children's Program.

The children, who would rarely have the chance to take any trips, were given transportation and admission to the park, t-shirts and food. Banner has sponsored this annual trip since 2005.

“The children that we serve at Stewpot would not normally be able to go on an ‘out of town’ trip,” said Stewpot Community Services Counselor, Sherry Adams. “Most of the kids in the community have not been out of Mississippi. Because of Banner’s love for our community, he makes it possible for our kids to travel outside of Mississippi, on a fun and exciting summer trip every year. David made it all possible because these kids don’t have to pay a dime.”

The community children’s program offers safe havens after school and during the summer, and provides educational help, self-esteem building and positive role models. Their after-school program and summer camp help over 200 at-risk youths from Mississippi.
