Ellen DeGeneres makes her largest donation ever to high school damaged by Hurricane Harvey
Donation will go to Rockport-Fulton High School
SAN ANTONIO – Ellen DeGeneres surprised students at a Rockport-Fulton High school with the biggest gift she’s ever given on the show — $1 million.
The money comes from Lowe's Gives Program.
Rockport was slammed by Hurricane Harvey last August and the town, and much of Texas is still rebuilding.
The gym at Rockport-Fulton High School was completely destroyed by Harvey, and the girl’s volleyball team spoke with DeGeneres about the experience.
“You always have a choice to make the best out of a situation. Having that positive mindset and wanting to make it better is really what got us through Harvey. I couldn’t have done it without my team and my coaches and the people in my community,” student Allison Sanders said.
