Actor/comedian/Philly guy Kevin Hart is giving back to his hometown.

Hart will donate 300 computers to the Philadelphia School district and 200 to city recreation centers, Mayor Nutter's office announced today.

The mayor and Hart will tour some of the receiving schools in November.

The schools getting computers are: Hartranft, Leeds, McCloskey, Overbrook Elementary, Rhodes, Stearne, Tilden and Mitchell. Twenty-seven rec centers will receive computers.

Nutter, in a statement, praised Hart and said that "these computers will allow our students to expand their studies, explore new course material, and prepare for college and careers for years to come.”

Hart said he was "blessed to be in a position that allows me to give back to the city that made me who I am."
