Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith along with fellow Hollywood star Jessica Alba have been quietly lending a hand to a Los Angeles-based charity that supports the homeless.
According to a message shared on social media by the LA Mission, the famous couple “donated enough school supplies to get over 150 more backpacks out to homeless students” while Jessica Alba’s company, Honest, helped provide backpacks as well as essentials for families in need such as diapers, wipes and more.

American painter Kenny Scharf also made an undisclosed donation.
Volunteers from the charity then separated the donated items into boxes, ready to be distributed to kids and parents at an event being held at Compton Avenue Elementary this week.
According to the organisation which has been working with the homeless since 1936, there are currently over 63,000 people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County and at least 17,000 are students.
