Justin Bieber Surprises Fans With Toronto Food Bank Visit
TORONTO - A busload of school kids volunteering Wednesday at Toronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank got the surprise of their lives when pop sensation Justin Bieber dropped in for a visit.
Canada’s Bieber was on hand to donate some food for Torontonians in need ahead of charity fund-raising concert at Massey Hall Wednesday night.
The Daily Bread Food Bank is mid-way through a winter and holiday drive to reach a goal by January 3 of 1.2-million pounds of food and $1.2 million dollars raised.
Bieber, who recently revealed his mother used a food bank when he was younger, has made it a habit to give local food banks a boost while on tour.
The pop phenom also skated Wednesday with members of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team at the Air Canada Center, and took shots at team goalie Jonas Gustavsson.
The cameras will be rolling on his Massey Hall performance for a half hour holiday special, Justin Bieber: Home For The Holidays, to debut on the MuchMusic cable channel and the main CTV network on Dec. 22.
Bieber, who hails from just up the road in Stratford, Ontario, will be singing hit songs like “Mistletoe” and “Baby”, and Christmas cover songs and classics.
