The “Finesse” singer, 33, is making sure that 24,000 people who live in Hawaii have a Thanksgiving meal on their tables come Nov. 22. Via the Hawaii Community Foundation, Mars is donating to the Salvation Army’s Thanksgiving Dinner Program in the Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Division.
His contribution is “single-handedly expanding [the program’s] reach across the state,” according to a press release. It is also bringing the program to home-bound individuals.
Mars may not be cooking thousands of meals himself, but he is handy in the kitchen. “U know every now and then I turn the stove on & make myself a salami sandwich. I think it’s best if u all knew that.. Alright.. take care,” he wrote on Twitter earlier in November.
On Sunday, Mars is concluding his worldwide tour in Honolulu, where he is from. Mars has expressed his excitement on Instagram about entertaining Hawaii crowds.
