Justin Bieber plays charity show for hometown food bank

Justin Bieber showed off his generous side by performing a charity show in Toronto, Canada to raise funds for a foodbank in his hometown.

The pop star took to the stage at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on Monday night (07Dec15) to play a special acoustic concert for Stratford House of Blessing, which provides food and clothing to those in need in Justin's native Stratford, Ontario.


During the show, titled An Evening with Justin Bieber, the singer thanked fans for coming out to support the cause and pledged all of the proceeds to charity.


"It's really good to be home," Justin told the crowd. ​"You guys are special, very special... I think this is the best crowd I've ever been a part of. I'm having a great time up here tonight."


Justin performed a number of his hit songs, and even made the night a family affair by bringing his younger half-brother Jaxon and half-sister Jazmyn onto the stage with him.


The Baby singer previously raised money for Stratford House of Blessing back in February (15), when he donated items from his childhood bedroom to an auction on eBay.com and made $64,000.


Justin has also spoken about how food banks helped his mother when she was struggling to raise him alone, and she even turned to Stratford House of Blessing when she needed help.


"My mom went to the food bank and she wouldn't tell me," he previously explained. "Then she'd bring back the food."
