$500,000 is being donated to state parks.

This comes as Texas State Parks are on the brink of closing their doors after a summer of droughts, wildfires and fewer visitors.

It's left our state parks devastated and in debt of $4.6 million.

Unless they can come with the money to keep the parks running, they'll have to be closed.

So far, more than $400,000 has been contributed or mailed in.
