The annual turkey drive started in 2015 and Young Dolph could frequently be seen at the front of the line, handing out dinners to Mid-South families in need.

A year later, in 2022, P.R.E. continued the tradition, giving out turkeys at various locations over several days in Memphis. On Tuesday, November 15 alone, a representative of the organization told FOX13 that the group handed out about 150 birds to Mid-South families.

The impact of Young Dolph’s murder was felt internationally and P.R.E. and the IdaMae Foundation hope that those people across the world who mourned the rapper’s death will remember his spirit of service by making a difference in their communities around the globe, be it carrying an elderly person’s groceries, planting a local garden or giving music lessons to a child.
