Detroit native Kenya Moore is doing good in the hood as the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta star’ delivered on the promise she made by donating $20,000 to the Detroit Public schools foundation. Moore told the Detroit Free Press last week that she wanted to help children in the city’s public schools. “A lot of (Detroit) kids now , because the city is bankrupt , they are just not getting the opportunities”, Moore said. “How do you expect them to excel when they can’t get a book they need for class, let alone a computer”. “I think right now it’s a dire situation for Detroit”. “I wish I can give more to DPS, clearly $20,000 is not going to solve the problem, (But) hopefully it will help”.

Moore , a 1989 Detroit Cass Tech grad was raised on the West side of Detroit by her grandmother who encouraged her to enter the Miss Michigan Pageant on her way to eventually being crowned Miss USA in 1993.

She currently stars as one of six members in the Bravo reality television series The Real Housewives of Atlanta since its fifth season premiere on November 4, 2012. Additionally, she founded the Kenya Moore Foundation, a charity which awards scholarships to underprivileged girls from her high school alma mater, Cass Tech. Moore will also be a contestant on the Celebrity Apprentice season 7, which will air sometime in 2014.

Moore also challenged Nene Leakes to match her 20K donation to DPS . a challenge that the highest paid RHOA cast member accepted.

Moore wrote on her Instagram post:

I’m proud to be able to give back and keep my promise to the Detroit public schools foundation to donate $20,000. Detroit is a resilient city and so am I. I will continue to shine despite the people who want to see me fail or try to turn my positivity in to negativity. See you soon Detroit! #igotyomoney #kenyalovesthekids #twirlsawayhaters
