Taylor Swift has pledged $50,000 to Ascension Public Schools to be used for flood relief efforts, according to a news release form the school system.
“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of those wanting to help our students. We are particularly honored that Taylor Swift is reaching out to us. Her investment in our children will have far reaching impacts as we recover from the flood,” said Ascension Public Schools Superintendent David Alexander in the release.
Around 5,000 students from the area were displaced due to the August flooding.
