As Texas continues to recover from the devastation that Hurricane Harvey left in its wake, many people have been wanting to help with relief efforts, including prison inmates around the entire state.

This isn't the first time Texas prisoners have made a sizable donation to disaster victims.

In just one month, 6,663 inmates raised $53,863, Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark told CNN.

Texas prison employees also benefited from the generosity of others.

Throughout September, the department posted fliers outside commissaries in some of its 104 facilities.

On average, those that donated gave $8 while the largest donation was $300.

According to the TDCJ, inmates donated the money to the American Red Cross from August 31 to September 30.

The donation comes as Texas struggles with the aftermath of the most destructive hurricane in over a decade, and the second most destructive natural disaster in USA history, second only to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
