President Trump and First Lady Melania gave $1,000,000 of their own money to Harvey Relief efforts and critics went after them as always. Today, we learned how the monies would be divided up.
The donation includes $300,000 for the Red Cross and Salvation Army; $100,000 for Reach Out America and Samaritan’s Purse; and $25,000 for ASPCA, Catholic Charities, Direct Relief, Habitat for Humanity, Houston Humane Society, Operation Blessing, Portlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies and Team Rubicon.
The White House said many of the organizations “were recommended, at the invitation of the president, by members of the White House Press Corps, and he would like to thank those who made recommendations for their attention to this important cause. The president and first lady continue to pray for the people of Texas and Louisiana.”
