Please answer in the light of Quran and Hadith.


Waalykum salam

thank you for your Question

You certainly can. Infact it is a very noble act to do so.
Charity is highly recommended in Islam.
Quran in S.Munafiqun:10 says:

وَأَنْفِقُوا مِنْ مَا رَزَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ قَبْلِ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ أَحَدَكُمُ الْمَوْتُ فَيَقُولَ رَبِّ لَوْلَا أَخَّرْتَنِي إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ قَرِيبٍ فَأَصَّدَّقَ وَأَكُنْ مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ


Spend out of what We have provided you before death comes to any of you, whereat he might say, ‘My Lord, why did You not respite me for a short time so that I could give charity and become one of the righteous!’

Since the money that your parents give you, they are purely your property as you can do as you wish.
