Stephen King is supporting young authors in his hometown.

According to People, he saw a local elementary school raising money on Kickstarter to publish two books students had written as part of an after-school writing program so he stepped in to help.

King donated $6.5K to Farwell Elementary School through the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, a private nonprofit the author and his wife launched in 1986 to help give back to local Maine communities, NBC affiliate WCSH reported.
