Carrie Underwood certainly knows how to start a new year with a bang--on a grand scale! The superstar recently gave her hometown of Checotah, Oklahoma a wonderful holiday gift of donations totaling $350,000, to benefit the city's school district needs.
The funds--which will be put to good use by Checotah's four schools towards items such as computers, playground equipment, and musical instruments--were donated through Underwood's charitable C.A.T.S. (Checotah Animal, Town, and School ) Foundation. The schools, which had made a list of their needs toward the end of 2011, found out just before the holidays that they would be receiving the funding.
