Texas inmates donate more than $50k to Harvey relief efforts

Inmates throughout the criminal justice system in Texas have raised more than $53,000 for Hurricane Harvey victims

Thousands of inmates in Texas have been visiting their prison's commissary - not for a can of Sprite or a roll of tissue paper, but to donate money to Hurricane Harvey victims.

According to Texas officials, the American Red Cross has received a donation of U.S. $53,000 from commissary funds to be used for mobilsing relief to regions affected by Harvey.

At the end of September, the department mailed one large check for $53,863 to the American Red Cross. That averages to $8 per inmate, with each pulling the money from his or her commissary fund, which is the account used to buy everything from personal hygiene items to snacks.

Friends and family members can contribute to the funds online, or purchase goods for inmates. The devastation sparked an outpouring of support around the world - apparently, even from prisons.
