Taylor Swift is giving back to kids in the Tennessee town where she went to school. The singer has donated a generous $100,000 check to build a new playground.
Swift handed over the cash to officials in the hope they could use it to benefit those who have been struggling in the wake of the 2010 floods which swept through Hendersonville, but her business manager has since suggested the funds will go toward updating the Kids Kingdom play area, as well as the city's volleyball courts, according to CMT.com.Hendersonville spokesman Dave LeMarbre says, "We appreciate Taylor's donation as well as all the others who have stepped up."
The website reports the old playground is expected to be torn down later this year and rebuilt in early 2011.
Don't forget that Taylor's music video for "Mine" premieres today simultaneously on CMT, MTV and VH1 with a live special at 8pm EST. You can watch it and behind-the-scenes clips HERE.
