Rihanna's giving back!
E! News has learned that the singer sent a check for $5,000 to Barrington High School in Illinois following her special appearance earlier this year.
Jeff Arnett, a spokesperson for the Barrington 220 School District, confirmed that the pop star's management had been in communication with school officials and had been planning the donation since March.
"The money will go to purchase new equipment for the students to use," Arnett explained. He also added that RiRi's staff was always very pleasant to work with throughout the entire experience.
