Sandra Bullock donates $1 million for Harvey relief
(CNN) — Sandra Bullock has donated $1 million to help those hard hit by flooding in Texas.
According to a press release from the Red Cross, the actress is a longtime supporter of the organization and made her donation Monday.
“I’m just grateful I can do it,” Bullock said in a statement. “We have to take care of one another.”
As of Wednesday, the former hurricane had been downgraded to a Tropical Storm but continued to batter parts of Texas and Louisiana with heavy rains and flooding.
At least 11 people have died in Texas as a result of the flooding.
Bullock is a former resident of Austin, Texas where she reportedly still owns a home and also maintains a residence in New Orleans.
Several celebrities have stepped up to offer relief support, including Kevin Hart, Kim Kardashian and Houston native Beyoncé.
Bullock has a long history of generosity after disasters.
She donated $1 million to the Red Cross after the September 11th attacks. She gave the same amount to the organization in 2004 after a tsunami in Indonesia and again in 2005, following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
In 2010, Bullock gave $1 million to Doctors Without Borders to aid in the Haiti earthquake relief effort.
CNN has reached out to a rep for Bullock for further comment.
