It’s no secret that Shaq is among a very small group of celebrities that are willing to go out of their way and help people, even if it’s a random act of kindness.

For example, the man recently bought brand new appliances for a random couple he met at Best Buy, and before that, he also paid off an engagement ring for another random dude he met at a jewelry store.

Those are just a few out of a long list of examples, and with that being said, the current NBA analyst and media personality is delivering the helping hand once again.

According to TMZ, Shaq recently drove around the city of Atlanta, Georgia, in a customized yellow school bus, stopping by a number of Papa John’s locations.

While he was there, he informed the employees about how they can get a free college degree, with all of the tuition paid for by Papa John’s Dough & Degrees program.

The program gives Papa John’s employees a chance to go to college for zero costs, with tuition, books, and other fees completely covered by the restaurant’s program. The employees don’t even have to be reimbursed, because the program pays for everything right off the bat.

It covers everything  from Associates to Masters programs, as 60 Papa John’s employees have graduated college through the program since it began in 2019.

This isn’t the first time Shaq’s left his mark in Atlanta, as he invested in nine restaurants in the area a few years ago, just out of the goodness of his heart.

And if his classy move to the Papa John’s employees wasn’t enough, he also went and delivered pizzas to customers for awhile in Atlanta, and let them know how the customers can help employees go to college.

Keep doin’ you, Shaq.
