Ghostface Killah will hand out 1,000 sleeping bags to homeless people in New York City next week, in an effort to help needy people.

Ghost, along with Ross Fredmand and Duke Wu, owners of the re-launched Troop apparel company will join the "One Thousand Sleeping Bags Partnership," to help address the growing problem.

Ghostface, who appears in the company's apparel advertisements, will personally handout the bags and will initiate a "Hat and Glove" drive.

Fans of the rapper are being asked to bring gently worn hats and gloves to the event in exchange for an autographed photo of the rapper.

"We've been donating clothing as an annual Troop tradition, but this year we wanted to do something special," Ross Fredman said. "All my life I've seen homeless in the parks struggling through the cold winter months. Struggling just to stay alive through the night. These sleeping bags are something that would make an immediate difference in people's lives. [They could] potentially save lives."

According to statistics, the number of homeless people in New York City are at higher levels than ever, surpassing the Great Depression.

The event takes Monday, November 24 from 11am-12:15 pm at 227 Bowery, in Manhattan.
