Justin Bieber donates $10,000 to hometown Food Bank

It’s only October, but Justin Bieber is already way ahead of the game when it comes to holiday spirit.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Justin recently handed over a check for $10,000 to the Stratford House of Blessing, a local food bank in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario - enough to fill its shelves through Christmas day.

It’s the same food bank where Bieber and his mother Pattie Mallette used to get their food when they couldn’t afford to buy a proper holiday meal.

"We just want to say how thankful we are to Justin Bieber and his family," says the House of Blessing's executive director. "The citizens that are struggling in Stratford will surely benefit from his generosity."

"Justin has a really big heart,"
says Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun in a new interview with THR. Indeed, Bieber has instituted that a portion of the profits from "Under the Mistletoe" be earmarked to benefit a variety of charities, including Make-A-Wish and Pencils of Promise.
