Kanye West and Girlfriend Volunteer at Homeless Shelter

Published December 28, 2009

Kanye West is ready to move back into the spotlight in a positive way. The Grammy Award winning rapper spread holiday cheer this weekend when he and his girlfriend Amber Rose volunteered their services to the Los Angeles Mission.

West and Rose donated their time to serve lunch to the homeless the day after Christmas (Dec. 26). The non profit organization has been assisting the homeless in the city’s “Skid Row” district for over 70 years.

“It's just important [to give back] when you're very blessed,” West said of volunteering. "[It's nice] to spread your blessings and take time out, especially during the holidays, to appreciate people who never get that appreciation. It makes me feel really good to come out here, [with] my family, and I just thank y’all [the Los Angeles Mission] for allowing us to be apart of this."
