Rihanna has been thanked for her generosity by the AFTP Foundation, who recently shared that the acclaimed singer made a donation in support of veterans who it provides supplies to
Rihanna is said to have made a “huge order” of donations to disabled and homeless veterans in Los Angeles, with her having been thanked by a nonprofit organisation.
The Always For The People Foundation (AFTP Foundation) – which aims to create “safer communities and empower people though education, transparency, and advocacy” – announced a few days ago that the singer-songwriter, 35, had donated. It was announced in a post on Instagram.
It featured a video that showed the nonprofit organisation’s founder Sennett Devermont expressing gratitude towards Rihanna and other donors for their generosity. He was seen showing various supplies piled up in the back of a van.

Sennett – who’s previously praised Rihanna for her support after she visited veterans last year – mentioned various donations in the video, including bathing supplies and shoes. He said in the clip: “Shoutout Rihanna [and] all the donors.”
The caption with it read: “Shoutout @badgalriri for donating more than we could have ever imagined to the Veterans who are disabled and homeless in Los Angeles. Tomorrow we will be giving it all away to those who’ve served us.”
The AFTP Foundation continued in the recent post on the platform: “We have rights and freedoms and opportunity in this country because of our Veterans. Instead of ‘thank you for your service,’ we ask ‘how may we serve you?'”
A source told PageSix that Rihanna had reached out to Sennett and that she “made a huge order” to donate to the foundation. He’s said to have then “distributed hundreds of hygiene kits, socks, clothes, sleeping bags, food, 50-plus pairs of shoes, toilet paper, dog food, you name it.”

The source said Rihanna – who recently welcomed her second child – was unable to be there in person as “things are crazy with the new babies”. They however said “she’s been very supportive even while becoming a new mom.”
Rihanna is said to have extended her support to veterans in the city last year when she spent time with some of them. A source previously told PageSix that she “spent hours listening to their concerns and their issues,” whilst a post by the AFTP Foundation in February last year expressed gratitude for her “amazing heart, time and energy”.
