Entrepreneur donates 700 meals to honor DMX in Yonkers
A local entrepreneur is honoring late rapper DMX by donating hundreds of meals in his honor.
The Municipal Housing Authority for the City of Yonkers teamed up with local entrepreneur Wayne Schneider to give away over 700 meals at Palisade Towers and the Ross F. Calcagno Homes. The location is where DMX spent his childhood.
News 12 was told that each box contains meat, cheese, milk, bread, fresh produce and more - and can feed a family of four for about three days.
DMX, whose real name was Earl Simmons, was born in Mount Vernon but grew up in Yonkers at 80 School St., which is known as Ross F. Calcagno Homes.
He died on April 9 at the age of 50.
