Ellen DeGeneres, Lowe’s to Donate $1 Million to Texas School
It's the largest gift ever given out by the Ellen Degeneres Show. In partnership with Lowes, Ellen just replaced the 'Gold Gym' at Rockport-Fulton High School.
The gym was destroyed by Hurricane Harvey last year, but the Pirates of Rockport-Fulton High School continued to participate in athletics together despite having to attend other schools while the rebuild of Rockport-Fulton was underway.
Ellen says she was so touched by the students dedication that she has partnered with Lowes Home Improvment to cover the $1,000,000 cost of replacing the 'Gold Gym' at the school.
