BIG MACHINE star TAYLOR SWIFT donated $100,000 to help rebuild a playground in at the high school she attended in HENDERSONVILLE, TN, according to the HENDERSONVILLE STAR NEWS. SWIFT originally made the donation to help HENDERSONVILLE with its flood relief but her manager suggested the money go toward the KIDS KINGDOM playground and the city's volleyball courts. Board members are expected to vote on an ordinance accepting the money at the next city meeting on SEPTEMBER 14th.
The playground was not entirely destroyed by MAY’s flood. It is expected to be torn down this fall and rebuilt early next year. The city expects a new playground to cost $175,000. TAYLOR also donated $250,000 last DECEMBER to assist schools she had attended, including ELLIS MIDDLE and HENDERSONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL.
