Texas inmates raised nearly $54,000 for Harvey relief efforts.

Inmates across Texas donated tens of thousands of dollars from their commissary funds to help Hurricane Harvey victims get back on their feet.

State prisons put up a flier near the store in each facility, prompting 6,600 inmates to make cash donations.

The average donation was $8, but several inmates made donations in excess of $100. Altogether, inmates collected $53,863 that will now be donated to the Red Cross.
