Carrie Underwood’s Foundation Buys Computer Labs for Hometown Schools

More than $350,000 of goodies go to four schools in Carrie's hometown of Checotah, Okla.

Carrie Underwood just loves her hometown of Checotah, Okla.—so much so that Carrie's foundation dropped $350,000 of goodies on the local schools there for Christmas.

"It gives me great joy knowing we are helping my hometown schools to offer an even better education to the students," Carrie said in a statement. "They deserve it."

That better education will include new computer labs for each of the four schools in Checotah. Carrie also got playground equipment, physical fitness equipment, band uniforms, instruments and other stuff.

All those items came from a wish list that the schools came up with, and Santa Carrie fulfilled each one.

A couple of years ago, Carrie delivered some other band instruments to her hometown, and just last year, Carrie helped build a playground there.
