Movie Mogul Tyler Perry Donates Generously to Unite Police, Community

(Facebook/Tyler Perry)

Producer-actor-writer Tyler Perry wants to bring unity to a shattered community in Atlanta, Georgia.

The creator of the Madea movie franchise donated 1,000 Kroger's supermarket gift cards to be handed out by the Atlanta Police Department.

Photos posted by the Atlanta Police Department showed police officers going door to door with the donations from Perry.

"This is about the good police officers who do their job well every day, some of whom are my personal friends," Perry said. "This is about trying to bridge unity in a city that adopted me and held me up high enough to reach my own branch on the tree of success."

The Atlanta Police Department was grateful for this gift and other donations.

"500 food boxes were distributed to families in need this morning during the grocery giveaway event at the Dunbar Rec Center," the Atlanta Police Department said in a tweet. "@tylerperry donated 1,000 Kroger gift cards to give out to the community. Thanks to all of those stopped by & to our partner agencies. #APDCares #WeLoveATL"
