Taylor Swift vowed to donate $1 million to help victims of the floods in Louisiana that killed at least 13 people and damaged tens of thousands of homes and businesses.

As a part of her $1 million total donation, Swift, 26, recently donated $50,000 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.

The nonprofit organization shared a message on Twitter and Instagram Thursday to thank the “Shake It Off” singer for her generosity.

“Today @taylorswift donated $50,000 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank! The #laflood destroyed our warehouse but we are going to shake it off!” the caption read.

Also on Thursday, the Salvation Army thanked Swift for donating to relief efforts. “Thank you @taylorswift13 for helping us serve the #LouisianaFlood survivors by donating to our relief efforts! #DoingTheMostGood,” the Christian church and international charitable organization tweeted.

Over six trillion gallons of rain fell on the state between August 8 and 14 for what the Red Cross has called the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy.

The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank was flooded with four or more feet of water in their facility and was forced to move to a temporary location.

If you would like to help those affected by the flooding, please visit organizations such as Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and Baton Rouge Area Foundation.
