With the holiday season in full swing, a number of artists including Virginia crooner Chris Brown and Atlanta rapper Future have chosen to give back to those in need in their communities.

Joined by fiancée and fellow artist Ciara, Future hosted the Astronaut Kids Holiday Charity Event for underprivileged children at Bessie Branham Park in Atlanta. According to Rap-Up.com, in addition to providing coats and gifts to attendees, the pair also took time to pose for pictures with those in attendance.

And on the West Coast, singer Chris Brown also took part in the holiday festivities as he hosted his first annual holiday toy drive. At the toy drive, which took place at Los Angeles’ Brooklyn Projects earlier this week, Brown collected toys and also greeted fans.

Following the event, the songster thanked fans via Twitter for their contributions at the toy drive.

Toys obtained at Brown’s toy drive will be donated to underprivileged children.

Other artists who have given back this season include Maybach Music Group helmsman Rick Ross and Detroit wordsmith Big Sean.
