Perry once donated $400 thousand to two Walmarts in December of 2018 to cover all the items that every single customer had put on layaway, basically rendering Christmas free to all those families.

Due to stay-at-home orders and social isolation, tons of restaurant workers are out of work. TMZ reports that Perry recently visited a Houston's restaurant in Atlanta and gave every out-of-work server a $500 tip.
