Nicki Minaj gave back to her hometown of Queens, New York by giving away turkeys at an elementary school. Minaj returned to her old neighborhood and gave away the turkeys to those who were effected by Hurricane Sandy. She had mixed feelings returning to her hometown. She explained before her trip, "I have no idea if my teachers are still there... One of my teachers that was there... I still keep in contact with her, and she lost, like, everything in Hurricane Sandy. I'm hoping I can see and help as many people as possible."
