The 37-year-old rapper and his six-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe - whom he has with his ex-wife Mariah Carey - travelled to the Los Angeles district Skid Row on Wednesday (22.11.17) to help homeless charity The Los Angeles Mission with their outdoor Thanksgiving dinner.

Posting a picture of himself and his brood at the event, the former 'America's Got Talent' host - who also has nine-month-old son Golden with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell - wrote on Instagram: "There's still time to make your way and join us here @thelamission #SkidRow #thanksgiving (sic)"

Nick and his twins weren't the only stars to appear at the event either, with the likes of Emmy Rossum and her husband, Sam Esmail, Melissa Rivers, Garcelle Beauvais, Heather Morris, Minnie Driver, and Sherri Shepherd all spending time volunteering at the charitable dinner.

Minnie shared a snap with her nine-year-old son, Henry, whilst at the event, and wrote: "#skidrowthanksgiving Today, @thelamission will serve 4,000 dinners!! #happythanksgiving #alllove There is no better organization to donate to today (sic)"

Elsewhere, rapper and actor Common was also lending a helping hand in Chicago, where he volunteered at the St. Stephen AME Church for Feeding America.

In a video clip posted to his Instagram, he said: "We feed the people. There's people that we want them to have the best Thanksgiving and let them know that they're loved. That's what God do ... We wanted to make sure we're giving back to our communities that we're representing on film and TV."

The clip was captioned: "Let's not forget to "Give" as well as give "Thanks" this Thanksgiving. We did a lot of filming for the @shothechi on the West side of Chicago so it was only right that we gave back to this community. #thechi (sic)"

It comes after reality star Kim Kardashian West and her sister Kourtney Kardashian - along with Kim's four-year-old daughter North - spent time volunteering at Los Angeles Food Bank earlier this week.
