He's turned his grief into a good deed as Michael Che recently shared that he will pay rent for 160 residents who live in the same apartment complex that his grandmother once called home. “It’s crazy to me that residents of public housing are still expected to pay their rent when so many New Yorkers can’t even work,” the comedian shared on Wednesday (April 15).
“Obviously, I can’t offer much help by myself," he said. "But in the spirit and memory of my late grandmother, I’m paying one month’s rent for all 160 apartments in the NYCHA building she lived in.” Check out Michael Che's post in full below.
