This Thanksgiving, the LGBT youth at the Ali Forney Center's Brooklyn site could be thankful for not only the center's services but for a visit from an entertainment icon -- none other than Madonna.

The music star stopped by the site with her son David and daughter Mercy James, The Huffington Post reports. In an Instagram post, she praised the center, which offers transitional and emergency housing, a drop-in program, and a variety of other services to homeless LGBT young people at several locations around New York City.

Madonna has been quite charitable lately, HuffPo notes. She performed a free concert in New York's Washington Square Park November 7 in support of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
