Perhaps Kim Kardashian and Zoe Saldana won't be ending 2011 on such a low note after all.

The two stars — both of whom are recently single — volunteered to serve Thanksgiving meals to the homeless on behalf of the Los Angeles Mission Wednesday.

(Kardashian, 31, ended her 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries on October 31; Saldana announced she and co-founder Keith Britton were ending their engagement after 11 years together on November 12.)

A rep tells Us Weekly that Kardashian "was very cordial and friendly" while volunteering at Wednesday's event. Though it was her first visit to the Los Angeles Mission, she "worked hard in both the food preparation area and in serving the food to the guests," the rep added.

Saldana, 33 — who has served at the Los Angeles Mission several times in the past — reminded her Twitter followers than they "could feed more if you log on to and donate."

Kardashian was so touched by the experience that she felt compelled to tweet about the "many kindhearted people" she met while volunteering. "Their goal is to feed 120,000 people by the end of the year!" she shared. "We fed so many today."

"Every one of us can do something small that will make a huge difference to someone else," she added.

The two women weren't the only ones who lent their star power to the charitable cause. Kirk Douglas and his wife Anne hosted the event for the seventh year in a row, while other volunteers included Jennifer Love Hewitt and Blair Underwood.

For 75 years, the Los Angeles Mission has served the people of Skid Row, providing shelter, food, clothing and professional medical and dental services.  It also offers long-term residential rehabilitation programs including education, job training/placement, transitional housing and counseling.
