With back-to-school season just around the corner, Kevin Hart helped some families get ready, while opening a new community learning center. The 43-year-old actor and comedian teamed with The Children’s Place and helped cut the ribbon for the first community learning center at NYC Parks’ Thomas Jefferson Recreation Center today, in East Harlem on Tuesday.

The funnyman completed his look with dark navy blue pants and pristine Golden Goose sneakers. During the ceremony, he spoke about what the opening of the center would mean for kids in the area. 

Hart also leant a helping hand by giving away free school supplies to families while also reading from his 2021 children’s book Marcus Makes a Movie. Hart stepped out with a baby blue polo shirt with black sunglasses and a silver watch on his left wrist and a silver bracelet on his right wrist.

‘You’ve got to understand what this does. It incentivizes kids to create, to be active, to dream,’ Hart said at the ceremony for the center, which includes over 2,000 new books. The Children’s Place will also be opening nine more learning centers across the country through the fall of 2022. 

‘This is the reason why I wrote my Marcus book series, Marcus Makes a Movie and Marcus Makes it Big. When The Children’s Place told me what they were up to, I had to join them,’ he added.

‘Over the last two years of the pandemic, I’ve seen first-hand the challenges that children are facing when it comes to learning, making my partnership with The Children’s Place even more important to me. I’m thrilled to be a part of this powerful campaign to provide an inspiring, much-needed space for kids, right in their own communities.”
