Washington Examiner: Trump officially donates $1 million to Harvey relief efforts

Originally posted at Washington Examiner by Mandy Mayfield.

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.

    Are you a legal immigrant? How much is Fox paying you to twist history? I can agree with some of your rhetoric but not much. I might suggest you start researching Trumps background and lawsuits against him for not renting to blacks or hispanics. Also his father’s connection to the KKK. Finally for now look into Jeff Sessions racist background. Regardless of any allegations you may make about the Democratic Party now, the truth is it’s Trump and the white supremists now. Thank you.
