'Tis the season for giving, and not only is Taylor Swift dropping a surprise album on Friday (Dec. 11), she also continued her streak of charitable donations.

An Ohio Swiftie named Sarah J. Bailey brought the star's "Christmas Tree Farm" to her front yard this year, setting up an elaborate holiday light display to the song alongside a box for food bank donations.

"BAILEY FAMILY LIGHTS 2020," she captioned a clip of the stunning display on Instagram. "this year, we got to add my girl, my favorite artist of all time, TAYLOR SWIFT (@taylorswift ) - 'Christmas Tree Farm'!!! Don’t forget, we also have a food drop box (covid safe) for donations to the local food bank, AND you can submit your letters to Santa (and he sends a personalized letter back!) This year has been tough, but this is something that we can all enjoy safely from the comfort of our cars, or the sidewalk for an up close experience! I hope this brings you as much joy as it does us in this crazy 2020."

Swift herself ended up seeing the video, and messaged Bailey personally this week to thank her. "Sarah, I loved your family's Christmas lights show!!! Thank you (and your dad) so much for using Christmas Tree Farm to create such a fun spectacle," the message Bailey shared to Twitter reads. "I really love how you've chosen to give back by mentioning your local food bank. I've made a donation to Our Community Hunger Center in your hometown. Happy Holidays! Love, Taylor."

Billboard can confirm Swift's donation to Our Community Hunger Center, and a rep from the organization shared, "We feel blessed to be able to provide a seven-day supply of food to over 200 families a month as well as holiday meals for Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter to those same families. We will also provide gifts for over 150 children for Christmas. We couldn't do that without the generosity of Our Community and donors such as Taylor Swift! We were amazed and thankful for her generous donation."
