Zac Efron is paying it forward.

The 24-year-old New Year's Eve actor donated more than 300 articles of clothing to the Children's Resource Network of the Central Coast, according to the San Luis Obispo Tribune. Efron dropped off the items one day before Thanksgiving.

"His gift says a lot," president and CEO Lisa Ray says. "It's not only the clothing. It's having something special that other kids wouldn't have access to. It shows them that people do care."

When Efron dropped the items off, Ray says she screamed like "a 13-year-old girl." The High School Musical alum also signed a wall in the Teens Closet.

According to The Tribune, special tags will be put on Efron's items so that the homeless and disadvantaged teens who receive them will know he previously owned them.
