The Grammy-award winner stopped at Miami’s Lotus Village on Tuesday to support families who moved into the nonprofit’s new shelter one week ago. Drake passed out $150 Target gift cards for the female residents.

The singer was in town shooting a music video. He made a pit stop at a local high school on Monday, performing for the students and leaving them a $25,000 check for new school uniforms.

The homeless shelter is trying to raise $25 million to expand its reach and become a national model for curbing homelessness among women and children. Its services include a community clinic, children’s wellness center, yoga and a Zen garden.
