In season 2 of Will Smith’s wildly popular original series “Will From Home,” available exclusively on Snapchat, Smith is celebrating everyday heroes across the country for their acts of selflessness and bravery. He and Alicia Keys surprised Patrick Mock, a Chinatown resident and manager of 46 Mott Bakery, who, after his community was hit particularly hard during the pandemic, began delivering free meals to elderly residents and hospitals to support them through this unprecedented time.
Will shared, “Our friends at Google have committed over $200 Million dollars towards supporting minority and women-led small businesses across the country. When we told them about you, they sent you cooler backpacks to help you get out those deliveries. They’re giving you a $50k grant and a year of coaching from 1863 Ventures, made possible with the support from Google.org to help you grow what you are doing and you can continue to do good for your community.”
Will invited Alicia Keys to join them for karaoke, and surprised Patrick with a new Phat Scooter. In addition, Asian Americans For Equality donated $10k towards Patrick’s “Light Up Chinatown” initiative.
