Nick Jonas has vowed to donate $25,000 to the North Texas Food Bank. The youngest member of the Jonas Brothers pledged the amount from his family's foundation during a visit at the charitable institution on Saturday.

As part of a joint effort with the reality show "The Biggest Loser" and Feeding America, the 17-year-old heartthrob made the two-hour visit to the North Texas Food Bank, where he spent half an hour helping assemble bags of food for children's snacks.

According to The Dallas Morning News, Nick, who is a diabetic, pledged the amount after a quick consultation with his father, Kevin, and after a tour of the facility.

Food Bank president Jan Pruitt said he was pleased by the unexpected gift from the young singer, saying Nick is showing his fans that volunteerism is important to him.

Nick kicked off a tour with his side project, The Administration, at the House of Blues in Dallas after the visit.
