Nicki Minaj donates $15,000 to aid New York hunger charity

Hip-hop star Nicki Minaj has donated $15,000 to a New York charity in a bid to help feed the needy over the Thanksgiving holiday this Thursday (22Nov12).

The Starships hitmaker announced the news during an appearance on 106 & Park on Monday (19Nov12), and signed a cheque for the Food Bank of New York City.

The funds will aid organization officials as they serve up hot meals for the homeless and those still struggling in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy.

Monday was a big day of giving for Minaj - she also spread a little Thanksgiving cheer by returning to her Queens elementary school to hand out free turkeys to struggling locals.
