Bella Hadid volunteers to help the homeless

Bella Hadid gave up her time to help organise Christmas toys for homeless children on Tuesday.

The catwalk beauty took time out of her non-stop modelling schedule to help the New York-based nonprofit organisation, the Coalition for the Homeless, and System Of Service, a community that provides impactful service opportunities, sort through boxes of toys and organise them so they can be distributed to homeless children living in shelters across New York City at Christmas.

Sharing an image of rows of cardboard boxes filled with toys on her Instagram Stories, Bella wrote in the caption, "With 60,000 people in their shelters/over 20,000 being children, the work @nyhomeless does every Christmas with their toy drive is so overwhelming and huge. Just like any other child, these children and their families deserve more than anything to receive great gifts and a smile on their faces this Holiday season. It made so happy in my heart to help. Thank you @nyhomeless."

The 23-year-old also shared a snap of her hugging System of Service co-founder Olivia Perez while holding a clipboard and surrounded by boxes. She can be seen wearing a multi-coloured knitted sweater, black trousers and boots.

Perez posted footage of the volunteers sorting through the boxes, before sharing a picture of the group, including Bella, holding toys and posing for the camera.

"Grateful for friends who always show up to give back!!!" she wrote in the caption.

Bella seemed to be in the giving mood on Tuesday, as she shared screengrabs of her making an online donation to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)'s Give for Girls Everywhere initiative.
