Country singer and songwriter Chris Young has donated items for auction, raising money to secure musical instruments for children. He’s supported a children’s hospital and donated money to a school for the arts.

His philanthropic efforts also extend to fire and life safety. According to radio station KSCJ, before performing in concert in Sioux City, Iowa, last weekend, Young donated to Sioux City Fire Rescue 100 smoke alarms with nonreplaceable batteries designed to be effective for up to 10 years.

Young has made smoke alarm donations in the past and has said he wants to do his part to support the safety of residents and the nation’s first responders.
