Mark Wahlberg donates $20K to Ohio foster care organization

Actor Mark Wahlberg, who is promoting his new movie “Instant Family,” donated $20,000 to an Ohio foster care organization.

Walhberg, and business partner Jay Feldman, made the donation to Buckeye Ranch, an organization that operates foster homes in 23 counties in Central and Southern Western Ohio. The organization serves children and families through family-focused mental health treatment and services for behavioral, psychological and substance-abuse disorders.

Walhberg's new movie is a heartwarming look into the foster care system in the United States. Wahlberg owns a car dealership in Columbus with Feldman.
