Former Van Halen and current Chickenfoot singer Sammy Hagar is helping a noble cause. According to Atlantic City Central, the Red Rocker has donated $10,000 to the St. Nicholas of Tolentine Parish Food Bank at Sammy’s Beach Bar at Bally’s in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The food bank has fed over 35,000 people in need over the past 15 years.

Hagar gave the generous donation right before Chickenfoot’s May 18 show at Showboat's House of Blues.

“When I see children that aren’t eating, that’s when I get really touched, so my first goal is to help children as much as possible because they’re the future of this planet,” said the singer, who has been donating funds to the local food banks of every city on the Chickenfoot’s 2012 “Different Devil Tour.”
