Alba Follows Apology To Charity With Donation

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Jessica Alba has made a donation to the United Way in Oklahoma City, where she ran into trouble for attaching a poster to one of the charity's billboards.

The United Way of Central Oklahoma announced Alba's donation Thursday. Spokeswoman Erin Brewer says Alba's attorney has asked the charity not to disclose the amount, but that Alba qualified for a Leadership Giving program that recognizes donors who give $500 or more.

"I can tell you it was generous and we felt it was very appropriate," Brewer said.

The 28-year-old actress had been in Oklahoma City filming the movie "The Killer Inside Me" with co-stars Casey Affleck and Kate Hudson.

She has previously apologized for putting up posters about the declining great white shark population on utility boxes and a downtown bridge. Police have said she will not face criminal charges.
