Justified and MOFIA Host Another Successful Heal the Ville Event

VICTORVILLE, CA – Earlier this month on June 16, recording artist and community raptivist Justified (JM) and Men of Faith in Action (MOFIA) brought a blessing to the high desert once again. Prior to JM’s Event “Compton In The House Concert” starring Legendary Rap Group 2ND II NONE and Leader of the new wave, AV LMKR, Justified and his rap friends distributed free diapers to families in Victorville. With the help of Terry Boykins of Street Positive and Community Action Partnership (CAP), over 300 packs of diapers were given away to young families with new born babies.

This awesome event was used as a fundraiser for Men of Faith in Action’s Annual Heal the Ville Event, where Justified and his MOFIA bring blessings to the community with a huge diaper give away, along with other resources and supplies to benefit the less fortunate.

On August 13, Men of Faith in Action, will be going all out and doing it again for the High Desert. Partnering with Who’s Next Barbershop, MOFIA will be hosting a free community event in the parking lot of the Barber Shop located at 15770 Mojave Drive in Victorville (Suite J), and they will also be giving away back to school supplies, along with diapers and other necessities that will leave a multitude of families blessed, accompanied by a free concert from Justified and a special Celebrity Guest.

Justified is very passionate about fatherhood, being that he is a single father raising two young girls after losing his wife and their mother to a vicious battle with cancer. Justified is currently involved with the National Daughters Lives Matter campaign and has devoted his time to being a light in the dark and extending a helping hand to others in need in the midst of his own trials and tribulations.
