Meek Mill and Reform Alliance, paid bail for 20 women this week — five of them was released from Riverside Correctional Facility on Friday, according to a press release.
“It was devastating for me to be away from my son during the holidays when I was incarcerated, so I understand what these women and their families are going through."
“No one should have to spend the holidays in jail simply because they can’t afford bail. I’m grateful for the opportunity to help these women be with their families and loved ones during this special time of year,” Meek Mill said.
As a special treat, each of the women will also receive a gift card to treat themselves to some much-needed groceries or gifts.
