Texas Inmates Raise Over $50,000 in Hurricane Relief

The American Red Cross has collected millions of dollars in donations to help areas of Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey, and $53,000 of that money came from a very unlikely source.

More than 6,000 inmates in jails and rehabilitation centers across Texas have donated their commissary allowances to Hurricane Harvey relief. Most inmates donated about $8, but some donated hundreds.

The money they are generously donating is given to them by the prison system in order to buy things like personal hygiene products.
