Big Sean may be seeing huge successes in his life and career, with a new girlfriend in Ariana Grande and a top 20 single with "IDFWU," but the rapper is not forgetting where he came from. In anticipation of Thanksgiving, for the second year in a row, Big Sean went to his hometown of Detroit for a massive holiday turkey giveaway.

According to Rap-Up, Big Sean and his mother Myra went to the River Rouge High School gymnasium in Detroit this week to give over 1000 people food for the holidays.

Alongside dozens of volunteers, Big Sean dished out turkeys and canned goods for the second year in a row in coordination with his Sean Anderson Foundation. The charity, which bears Big Sean's real name, has the mission to help Detroit-area high schools and students with their health, safety and wellness, was founded in May 2012, following Big Sean's initial successes in the rap game.

His mother and brother are also on the board of the Sean Anderson Foundation.

Being charitable in his hometown isn't the only plan that Big Sean has this holiday season.

On Dec. 5, the rapper will appear alongside his high-profile beau Ariana Grande at the A Very GRAMMY Christmas Concert to perform their duet from My Everything, the sizzling R&B tune "Best Mistake." The two were spotted recording the performance earlier this month, looking as full of chemistry as ever.
