As part of her $1 million contribution, Swift, 26, recently donated $50,000 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, her spokesperson confirmed to PEOPLE.

 

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

 

“Today @taylorswift contributed $50,000 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank! The #laflood destroyed our warehouse but we’re going to shake it away!” 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 giving to our aid efforts!
Over six trillion gallons of rain dropped on the state between August 8 and 14 for what the Red Cross has called the worst natural disaster to hit the United States since Hurricane Sandy.

 

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