President Trump made good on his promise to donate $1 million to Harvey relief efforts, according to a report Saturday.
The president sent 12 checks to various organizations helping Texas and Louisiana recover after last month’s disastrous storm, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed today.
Directly following the hurricane, Sanders announced Trump would be making the generous donation to aid relief.
The Salvation Army and American Red Cross received the most notable donations—$300,000 each.
Reach Out America and Samaritan’s Purse, two Christian relief organizations, received $100,000 each and the other eight groups—ASPCA, Catholic Charities, Direct Relief, Habitat for Humanity, the Houston Humane Society, Operation Blessing, Portlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies, and Team Rubicon–would receive $25,000 each, according to the report.
Many of the organizations confirmed to The Hill that the donations had been received.
Reach Out America confirmed on Facebook they received their $100,000.
